Never heard of this museum until I came across it on MTA's website. They had an exhibit on one of the 7 Deadly Sins which I thought it would be fun to see with a friend. Exhibit was really good. The rest of the museum was enjoyable as well. We really enjoyed the planetarium. The gentleman who narrates does a... More

We had heard of this museum but knew nothing about it. We were wandering north of New York City on a getaway and happened by it. It has a newer building where most of the exhibits are and then a beautiful old house with some more that is attached. The Hudson River exhibit is great for adults and children, with... More

Went there for years w the kids. Class trips etc. Really interesting place, kept clean. The best thing is they have a planetarium. I don't know of any other in the area other than NYC. Nice place to bring the kids. You can access it by Metro North RR, Glenwood stop, and walk up the hill. Plenty of free parking.

This is one of the favorite places that my grandson and I go to for a visit to enjoy the relics of local history. There is a nice collection of paintings from the Hudson River School of Art. My grandson loves the art but also loves visitng Glenview a wonderful 19th century Victorian mansion filled with period furniture and decor.... More

Its summer& that means great concerts at HRM Amp. Bring a cushion because although they offer one at the door,it is still a hard seat-cement! But the music is wonderful& FREE!

This place is dimly lit and small. There isn't much to do or see. There is free parking and if you're a Wave Hill member admission is free.

The museum always has very interesting exhibits. They have a planetarium which can't compare to the one in Manhattan but for its size the shows are great. Outside of the museum there is a amphitheater which during June, July and August they have awesome concerts. Just go to their website and check out their calendar of events.

My group of 50 senior citizens thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. We toured the home and had a great planetarium show. The artwork was beautiful here and wonderfully presented. This is a top museum and has much to offer. Please stop if you are in the area!

My family loved the planetarium show. Very educational. The museum also offers free activities for kids 2-11 yrs old. Also the view to the Henry Hudson River is beautiful. There is not tour, so you are an on your own, but the personnel is very helpful all around the building and there are security guards in the museum and the... More

A Multi-Experience Extravanganza You Won't Believe You've Missed. The Hudson River exhibit is a first-class, top-of-the-line exhibit with inter-active activities for children & families. Do not miss it. The Planetarium shows are all different. Our 6 1/2 year old grandson made us stay for 4 hours to catch all 3 shows scattered throughout the afternoon. The Yale Ph.d guide was...
