The Hudson River museum is ideal for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon outing The museum features a permanent collection of historical Hudson Valley paintings and RiverRama, an ecological multimedia study of the Hudson River. Every several months there are special exhibits. The current special exhibit is about peacocks in art and fashion and well worth seeing. The museum has a... More

Although somewhat hard to find without a GPS, the Hudson River Museum has an outstanding permanent collection and special exhibits that change every two or three months. Attached is the newly renovated planetarium. The property is magnificent, overlooking the Hudson. There are regularly scheduled tours of what was the mansion house. Parking is free. It's the perfect size to spend... More

The museum focuses on the local history and culture. My favorite are the paintings of the day when the Hudson River Valley was developing. Bridges, horse carriages and landscapes were absolutely beautiful. The best part if the renovated mansion (architecturally speaking). The temporary exhibit at the time, "crochet monsters" as I call it was peculiar to say the least, but... More

Seriously. There is nothing going on in the museum...or rather there is nothing in the museum. Planetarium was ok, kind of old fashioned (not like Museum of Natural History's). Stuff was very friendly. And I would have given the museum 2 stars if it was not for the neighborhood.

This museum is nice if you have some time to spare and you are in the area. It is not expensive and the Hudson River exhibit was really interesting. I could have done without the other exhibits though.

For a nominal entrance fee, we got art (Hudson River School and quirky contemporary), history (Yonkers specifically), a look at life in late-19th century NY, a geography lesson (on the Hudson River) and beautiful view of the river. It doesn't require a while afternoon and there is not a cafe, so eat lunch before you go..

Went to Hudson River Museum on a Friday night because I heard they offered a laser light music show. Apparently it was a limited offering because they don't have the show anymore. The staff doesn't seem very friendly, actually almost seemed annoyed that people were in the museum. The lady in the gift shop was nice enough but she's outnumbered... More

My husband and I visited a while ago and were very impressed with this little gem. Very informative . We loved to learn about the Hudson river, valley and vicinity and this museum offers all of this.

We visited this museum on our way home from another nearby attraction. It was small, but it had some great exhibits!

This was my first time visiting the museum. Rich in Westchester (and Yonkers) history. The adjoining mansion is beautiful. Well worth a visit.
