We wanted to see the Hudson River school paintings which is one of the highlights of this museum but we were also delighted to see what else the museum had to offer: super dance photography exhibit, a fun contemporary art exhibit (you have to go into the Red Grooms Bookstore), a lovely mansion and some great local history with photographs...

I enjoyed going through this museum, and marveled at the eclectic nature of the collections - Hudson River School oil paintings, a bit of local history, photographs, the planetarium, modern art (including oh, a few Warhols in the corner), and a lovely view of the palisades and the Hudson river through expansive windows. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the Red Grooms bookstore... More

Small, but there is some good art and the house (Glenview) is spectacular. The art museum is small enough that you can enjoy it and take some time to really take in the paintings. There is also a small planetarium (closed when I went) and downstairs is an excellent exhibit on the Hudson River. The first floor of Glenview has... More

The kids will enjoy the planetarium: a good place to start to learn about the universe. The narrator was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. The art is ok: nothing to rave about but a good collection of the Hudson River School. There was a temporary exhibit which I didn't like but my wife did. Great views of the Hudson. Interesting tour... More

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.
