Took my mom with me to check an place off the list of 'places to see on LI'. The museum can be done within 30-60 mins depending on the exhibit they have going on. We were more intrigued by the woodwork inside the building. We went in February and it was brisk outside but we still walked the formal gardens... More

Walked through the gardens and grounds of the museum today. Plenty of sculptures to view on the grounds without entering the museum. We thoroughly enjoyed viewing the beautiful gardens by the parking lot.

It's definitely a stop to make. The grounds are beautiful and the sculptures are cool. The mansion tour was kind of boring since a lot of the mansion rooms have not been preserved and are used for exhibits instead.

As a museum lover you can't get a better bang for your buck then at the Nassau County Museum of Art. Discounts are available for students and seniors and even if you aren't eligible for a discount you still pay at least 50% less than most New York City museums charge . The 146 acres with trees and gardens are... More

Set in an elegant estate, the museums' ever changing collection evolves with world renown collections as well as its' own collection. The Alexander Calder and Botero sculptures are set in a park like fashion all along the great lawn. The light drenched cafe is a great spot for a nice lunch or desert.

One of my friends and I always try to catch whatever exhibit the museum has, and have really seen some excellent ones. I was going to say the most recent 2, but when I think back, there are just so many. There are times when we go not expecting much, and that is where the last 2 come in, and... More

We enjoy coming here occasionally. The docents are knowledgable and the exhibits change regularly. The sculpture garden and the grounds are nice to walk around during the warm weather

Another visit to the Nassau County Museum of Art did not disappoint. Modern art graced the walls of the mansion. Nice to see greats like Leger, Picasso, Renoir, Matisse right in our own backyard. This gem of a museum is not large, but carefully curated exhibits are worth a visit. Also don't miss the beautifully landscaped grounds, or the outdoor... More

The art is usually very well curated and the museum itself is small enough to do in a comfortable hour or so. The outdoor sculpture gardens are gorgeous as are the grounds.
