A small museum, well known among Russian community. Donations are accepted as an entrance fee. Amazing paintings, you can stand for hours there. The number of paintings is smaller than at Roerich’s museum in Moscow, however some of them are incredible.

My girlfriend and I came here as part of our Russian themed date. The museum was spacious and quiet and his art work is beautiful. The only negative I have is that some of the items on display had no descriptions and there was no info on his life, but other than that it was enjoyable.

We can thank Nick for the Sacred Geometric third eye upon our dollar bill, ultimately. Spend an hour or more in his museum, and you can experience life in your own Upper Westside townhouse- with a Hudson view. The interiors are remarkably intact. Exploring Riverside Park makes for a full day. Consider Roerich's artistic offerings in relation to vanGogh, for... More

This small private museum hidden away in the upper west side (but close to bus routes) presents a small collection (three floors) of works by this Russian artist. The modernistic landscapes are often given a mystic, spiritual quality by the addition of people of buildings. If you get the chance it's worth a quick visit. Entrance is free but you... More

Quirky, tiny little museum in an old historic building. If you are in the upper west side area you should definitely check it out. The breezy riverside park is nearby as well as the Cathedral of St. John the Divine- make an afternoon of all three. They often have chamber music on the second floor. Roerich was a fascinating painter.

Tucked away on a quiet street ( if that is even possible in New York) you will find one of the most remarkable museums you will ever visit. This collection of the mystic and visionary artist Nicholas Roerich is outstanding and is very affordable. Make an effort to find out more about this great man and about his wife Helena.... More

The museum is three floors of a brownstone on the upper West Side of Manhattan, and it features the art of Nicholas Roerich, about whom I knew nothing. But I loved his landscapes--modernist paintings that were as spare and haunting as the landscapes themselves (the Himalayas). The museum is small, and can be enjoyed in an hour or so. The... More

Museum in a townhouse on Upper West Side with the works of Nicholas Roerich, plus some other treasures. Paintings are beautiful and this place is not overrun like other museums and the crowd is wuirt. We enjoyed a piano concert last week, so check out their concert schedule as well.

Located on West 107h street this museum houses the works of Nicholas Roerich, who, in the beginning of the 20h Century, travelled through India and the Hymalayas. He was more than a painter - a fabulous one at that - but also a philosopher and much more. It is a quiet place and I felt very much at home in... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
