Still remember my first visit

I still have very fond memories from visiting here in 5th grade many years ago. Great piece of history. I hope kids can still learn as I did from visiting here.

We visited the museum today and experienced a step back in time. The Bronck House is the oldest house in the Hudson Vally and one of the three oldest in New York State. We took the guided tour for $6 per person and it was well worth it. The tour guide Shelby was very informative and guided us through the... More

It's a small museum that will take about an hour. There's a guided tour that's very interesting, giving the history of the Bronck family - think "The Bronx".

I learned a ton from Shelby, the guide and curator. She put each era in perspective which helped a lot with understanding what times were like for people. (I feel SO bad for the women of the era...wow! Their lives were tougher than I imagined!) It is great to be able to see homes as they were in the years... More

I've enjoyed going to the the Bronck Museum on more than one occasion. You can take interesting historical tours and or attend their special events. There is so much to learn here about a very difficult period in history. I learn something new every time I go. When you have Shelby as your tour guide you are in for a... More

This 17th century original homestead is the oldest in New York. It is in pristine historical condition due to the fact that 8 generations of the Bronck family actually lived in it but never "updated": they kept it in the original colonial state. It is a gem. When the last Bronck family gave it up, in 1939, they donated it... More

I vacationed in the area several times and never knew about this awesome museum. Thanks to TA, I found it. Our tour guide was an expert on NY history and was eager to share. We learned so much about colonial times and NY state history. It was worth the visit.

This is a beautiful home/farm with buildings dating from the 1600's-1800's. The family was good enough to donate the site and money to maintain it, and the historical society has done well by the site.

My partner and I are history buffs so we try to see everything an area has to offer. We go to the Hudson Valley and Catskills often, but never made it to the Bronk Homestead until now. The tour guide was an extremely knowledgeable woman who gave us a private tour, as it was a quiet day and we happened... More

One of the most comprehensive tours we've ever been on. Really makes 17th century life in Hudson Valley come alive. Special November tour covered fall and winter celebrations. Even provided refreshments served at that time.
