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.

Easy to find with plenty of parking. Not located in the best area, but the museum felt safe and was in good condition. Currently, the Andrus Planetarium is closed for renovations. I believe it will reopen in March 2014. Additionally, one part of the art installation is closed for updating. What is open is the permanent collection which has a... More

Nice coupling of a Gilded Age Victorian mansion with a 20th century addition. Likewise, the art inside often reflects the same periods. The current exhibition called Industrial Sublime: Modernism and the Transformation of New York’s Rivers, 1900-1940 is one example of the many first rate shows that highlight the particular locale of this unique museum.

My husband and I are big fans of this museum along the Hudson in Yonkers which combines art, science (through its Planetarium and Riverama installations and programs), history and architecture, vis a vis the Glenview Mansion. The art exhibitions are very well curated, with impressive loans and scholarship (the current Industrial Sublime exhibition is a great example; we visited it... More

Education is education and this museum should not be passed by. Make a day of it but please be careful for I you get lost you may find yourself I an unsavory area. That's why only 3 stars. Don't get lost.

This was my second visit. The first visit was years ago and the museum was still being constructed. Now completed, they have done a beautiful job. This is a formal modern museum setting on the immediate property of a historic mansion. A good place to spend time especially when the weather is not good. Recommend for home school and school...

The exhibits change regularly. So, know in advance what is being shown. It's all a matter of taste because a museum is defined, in part, by the work they show.

While this museum is technically open to the public, the entire art collection is closed for renovation. Nowhere on their website, nor on the telephone, do they bother to disclose this minor piece of information. Do Not Go. It is a complete waste of time.
