great place to visit

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!

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...

Yonkers has very little in the way of culture as it is a City of many hills and valleys where nothing is on the level. The museum has some great art work and a mansion filled with period pieces and furniture that take you back in time. The planetarium puts on a good show. Good for children and they do... More

The Hudson River museum and Planetarium are an enjoyable venue for the entire family. The art work reflects the Hudson River School but has several more modern exhibits. The ecology section about the Hudson is kid friendly. The mansion 's lower floor depicts a wealthy early 20th century family home. The planetarium show was entertaining and educational for everyone.
