“Hopper Home comes Alive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Don't expect his paintings, but have imagination. Many of homes in town were used as details in his paintings.

“Awesome museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Set in Edward Hopper's actual home, this museum features some great works. We saw the photographs of Dorothea Lange presented in a wonderful manner. Thursday night concerts are wonderful here, too. The setting in Nyack is spectacular. Just across the street is "Pretty Penny" former home of Helen Hayes and Rosie O'Donnell, and also the subject of a famous Hopper painting. Not to be missed site in the Hudson Valley.

“Hopper's boyhood home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

It really helps to understand the artist's later works when you visit this home/museum & see for yourself the kind of light & riverview Hopper grew up with. Stand in an upstairs bedroom & look down the hill to the Hudson, as he must have done, many times. The permanent exhibit of his work is miniscule, but many other gallery shows are set in a revolving schedule. Outdoor live concerts are held in the backyard on Summer Thursday evenings.

“a local gem and significant historic site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The Hopper House is the birth home of Edward Hopper. The art gallery is supported by established art historians and contains many of Hopper's possessions and art. It is a tourist destination in Nyack not to be missed. Local artists further support the museum.
