We visited this museum on Saturday, based on Internet suggestion. We came specifically for planetarium show. But since we came earlier we could visit few exhibitions. Some creative installations, paintings, photos of dancers (this is a temporary exhibition )at 12.30 there was half an hour show for smaller kids age 5-7. But I'm sure even older kids would love that... More

Hudson River Museum offers a variety of exhibitions during the year. They have a wonderful planetarium which is quite fascinating. Be sure to check planetarium show times so that you will be able to get into this fantastic show.

I enjoyed going through this museum, and marveled at the eclectic nature of the collections - Hudson River School oil paintings, a bit of local history, photographs, the planetarium, modern art (including oh, a few Warhols in the corner), and a lovely view of the palisades and the Hudson river through expansive windows. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the Red Grooms bookstore... More

Small, but there is some good art and the house (Glenview) is spectacular. The art museum is small enough that you can enjoy it and take some time to really take in the paintings. There is also a small planetarium (closed when I went) and downstairs is an excellent exhibit on the Hudson River. The first floor of Glenview has... More

The kids will enjoy the planetarium: a good place to start to learn about the universe. The narrator was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. The art is ok: nothing to rave about but a good collection of the Hudson River School. There was a temporary exhibit which I didn't like but my wife did. Great views of the Hudson. Interesting tour... More

Never heard of this museum until I came across it on MTA's website. They had an exhibit on one of the 7 Deadly Sins which I thought it would be fun to see with a friend. Exhibit was really good. The rest of the museum was enjoyable as well. We really enjoyed the planetarium. The gentleman who narrates does a... More

We had heard of this museum but knew nothing about it. We were wandering north of New York City on a getaway and happened by it. It has a newer building where most of the exhibits are and then a beautiful old house with some more that is attached. The Hudson River exhibit is great for adults and children, with... More
