Great museum with a lot of fabulous art work. A true gem. They often bring in temporary famous art also. Don't miss this!

“A must for art lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I was hoping this museum would be good and it surpassed my expectations. The Hyde collection is housed in the home of Charlotte Hyde, a local woman whose father owned the paper mill in town. If nothing else the home itself is worth the small admission fee. The collection contains works by Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Dyk, Degas, and Winslow Homer and Peter Paul Rubens. In addition to the regular collection owned by Mrs. Hyde, the museum has a traveling collection, which, when we went was very good also. Try to schedule your visit on a day in which they give tours of the house.

“fall fun saturday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My sister and her husband live in Saranac Lake NY. Last weekend we went for a fall upstate adventure. Trip advisor said the Hyde collection was a gem and they were right. The home and artwork collection were spectacular to say the least. We joined a tour already in progress for 10 minutes and the tour director was so down to earth and knowledgeable she enhanced our experience. I would recommend this to anyone going upstate any time. The modest fee of 8 dollars 6dollars for seniors was well worth it.

“wonderful museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

What a surprise to find the quality of items here in this fairly small venue. It is a treasure to have in Glens Falls, New York and I highly recommend going to it.

“A Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I suppose somewhere in the US someone would argue that there's a treasure like this - but I would argue. This is top notch, amazing, and not to be missed! One of my absolute small museum favorites. Where else can you see a Boticelli on the dining room table, or a Rembrandt in the library? And more....
