Moved right down the street from here and decided to take a Sunday stroll and check out the local museum. First I was able to save the 6 or so dollars per person as my entire family was granted free access for military veteran status. I always appreciate a military discount and free is the best of all. The museum... More

Wow, what a great museum and planetarium right here in Yonkers. They offer changing exhibits as well as a ton of permanent ones too. Great day was had by all at the Hudson River Museum.

This is a very cute museum to keep the kids busy for a couple of hours (about 2-3 hours max). They have a small section about the Hudson River itself which is sufficient enough. They have a room with artwork on exhibit but I went with my three kids, all under the age of 5 so we skipped that room.... More

Located on beautiful grounds, this museum would be ideal for young adults, I've attend a few different events there and found it to be a nice place

Took a group of 50 people to visit the Museum and Mansion. There is something for everyone to enjoy. The staff is friendly and the docents we had were very knowledgeaible made a wonderful visit even more memorable. Thank you

For a small museum there is certainly much to do here. The first floor contains mostly paintings of the Hudson Valley area and the second floor houses their exhibits. Currently there is an exhibition containing paintings of the Panama Canal as well as an interesting small scale exhibit called "If the creek don't rise " by Thomas Doyle. There's also... More

Besides changing exhibits (the current one is Panama Canal paintings) this museum has a wonderful diorama of the entire Hudson river, a planetarium, and a furnished mansion.

Outstanding local museum with a varied collection of fine art, contemporary art, decorative art co-mingled with natural collections, a planetarium and a Victorian Mansion! The small admission cost ($7) is a bargain considering all there is to do and see. The education programs and tours were first rate. Recommend this stop if you are in the Yonkers area!

Given this museum's name, we were somehow expecting a stellar collection of Hudson River School paintings along with significant exhibits and information about the river itself. As it turns out, the items we saw from the permanent collection of landscapes, portraits, and other works were pleasant enough but not memorable; and regrettably, due to lack of time, we never got...
