“Wonderful collection for a small city!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I visit the Hyde when there are special exhibits, and am always impressed by this little museum having originally lived near NYC. I have brought friends visiting the area and they are amazed at the quality of the main collection and the range of masters represented. I love the audio system used on your own cell phone. Every time I go, I revisit the main collection and notice a new detail. It's like seeing old friends.

“A gem of a museum”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

There are lovely paintings here, including some excellent "old masters" in this rather remote regional museum, and the house of the family that collected the paintings has been beautifully restored. Well worth a detour to visit.

“A great surprise”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a small town museum that has a world class collection of art. The benefactor who established this museum had a fine collection of European and American art from the 15th through 20th centuries. Since the establishment of the museum after the death of the primary benefactor the Hyde Collection has been expanded by very dedicated and loyal community support. The facilities are modern and well appointed. There are traveling shows that vary the collection from time to time. This is well worth a visit if you are in town.
