“A Place and Two Artists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The house and studio give you a peak into how Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner lived during his most prolific period and how she lived for many years after his tragic auto accident in 1956. The studio with the splattered floor where he worked and splattered walls where she latter worked also contained paints and tools they used.
We took the guided tour that begins at 12:00 and feel that it enriched our visit. The drive to their home and visit to the cemetery where they are buried was picturesque and evocative. It's all a welcome change from the traffic, landscape crews and conspicuous consumption of the "Hamptons".

“WHERE GREAT MODERN ART WAS CREATED”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The Pollock-Krasner House was certainly a surprise. Situated on a scenic inlet from a larger bay, its tranquility is in strong counterpoint to the abstract art that was created there.
Seeing Pollock's studio is a highlight for art lovers.

“Pollock for Little Kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

During the summer, there was a children's program that was offered on Saturday mornings before the museum opened to the general public. The tour was designed for children and their parents. At the end of the tour, each child and parent were able to create their own JPollock abstraction with real canvas and paint. Very cool!!!!

Check out their website at www.jacksonpollock.org after your visit. Your children can make their own JPollock original designs on the computer or ipad ONLY IF if they can get you to relinquish the device!

“Dripping with history and culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Visiting this Studio/Learning center on Saturday June 30th. We opted for the guided tour and paid $10 each, it was well worth it. The tour was informal and informative. Lots of anecdotes and tales of their lives together and separately. Did this as a side trip when visiting East Hampton. The Studio is only 15 minutes from the center of the village.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Amazing opportunity to stand in Pollacks studio and see where he did his work. The tour guide was superb and the gift shop had a nice collection of books and other items.
