The Pollock-Krasner House is a great place to take your kids on the weekend. They get to splatter paint like Jackson Pollock and generally have a great time. If you are in the area and have children, please take them. They'll love it.

Pollack's house overlooking the water gives one a wonderful sense of what he and his paintings were about. I especially liked seeing the paint on the floor where he did his drip paintings.

Visit this home museum of two famous abstract expressionist painters. Visitors can go into Pollock's studio and see the drips on the floor and the cans of house paint he used. In the house, you can see Lee Krasner's studio and the way they lived. There are always shows of contemporary painters in the house. The site is beautiful, too.... More

Want to step back into a time, post war when the Springs WAS the epicenter of artistic innovation? Lovely small museum/ house/ studio with walk about grounds has been well preserved and without any kitsch. Book ahead and this is a small museum with limited parking. The powerful paint splattered studio floor is worth the visit alone even if you... More

Paid a visit on a Friday afternoon in December. Not open, but a nice young lady let us peruse the grounds and we got a good look into the barn. What a find !! I've past this place at least a dozen times never setting foot on the grounds. This place is meaningful. I'm no art enthusiast. But for some... More

I brought my 2nd grand daughter for their children's tour and art program. My first visit was just adults. It was interesting but not nearly as much fun as seeing the home, grounds, studio and process with my children. We learned about Lee and Jackson and then we dripped our very own creations. I recommend trying to be Pollack. The... More

Introduction to the lives of Pollack and Krasner. By pre-paid appointment only, visitors get a guided tour of their house and art studio. Great for art majors and those interested in these artists. The house is outside of East Hampton.

This is a great place to visit. Whether you are a art nut or not, the place is a great stop in the Hamptons with friends, family, or solo. His gravesite is not too far in which you can add a stone to the many on his tombstone. As for the Pollock studio, its really neat to step into the... More

I didn't get on a tour as they were full but I was free to walk around the grounds and enjoy the scenery. Lots of history here and well worth visiting if you love modern art.
