“Hands down, best place to take an art class !”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Of course seeing the actual paint-splattered studio floor of Jackson Pollock and gazing into the original Pollock/Lee Krazner home is amazing... The tour guide was interesting -- but the most fun was taking the art class... They say advertise this in local places "for kids," but it's a blast for adults as well... Just kick loose and splatter some paint around. The painting my 6-year-old and I went home with went up on the wall, and people always ask us who painted it, thinking it was a famous artist. Great memories!

“The floor where Blue Poles was painted”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The studio is small and intimate for the guided tour of 12 or so to soak up the ambience of Pollock's world. One of opened tins of house paint and brushes of all sizes; a draughty work place shored up by printed masonite board that were discarded games sent by a brother; photographs and contemporary newspaper articles; quotes and most of all the thick paint remaining from working on the floor.

Wonderful tour of the Pollack/Krasner house. Discovering Lee Krasner was really a treat. She was a powerhouse and amazingly talented artist.

It's a small home & Jackson Pollack's studio which you can go into & walk around on his painting drippings...

“Great stop in East Hampton”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I visited here on our recent visit to the Hamptons. We saw an ad for the Pollock-Krasner House and called up to make a reservation (you need to do this in the off-season). Nobody answered, so we left a message and heard back fairly quickly.

When we arrived at the House we roamed around and checked out the property before the tour. Our tour group was small, maybe 6, and we had a wonderful tour guide. This tour guide had been working at the House for 13 years and was able to answer all of our questions while weaving a story of Jackson and Lee that made you feel like you were well-acquainted with the couple.

Seeing the studio was fascinating. Whether going in as an art enthusiast (like my husband) or a casual enjoyer of art (like me) seeing a place where an iconic American artist created his works was a powerful experience. You even get to walk on the floor boards that still have the splatter from his painting (with special slippers of course).

All in all, the tour took about 1.5 hours and was well worth the $10 we paid. We would definitely recommend it for a small stop while visiting town.
