The personal collection of Charlotte Pruyn Hyde and her husband, Louis, is now a world-class museum that offers a wide range of artwork that includes the likes of El Greco, Rembrandt, Rubens, Homer, Hassam, Cezanne, Degas, DeVinci, Matisse, and Picasso all set in a 1912 Florentine Renaissance style villa, one of three homes that comprise the Museum compound. It's unexpected, but wonderfully exciting to have such an accessible gem of a musem in what is typically seen as a small, upstate New York industrial community - Charlotte's father was a partner in a major paper company whose production facility is almost literally in the Museum's backyard! Museum is closed on Monday. A small admission fee is charged.
Special exhibits are regularly mounted (Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George and Alfred Steiglitz and Lake George are currently featured) but regardless of when you visit, the Museum is a geat place to experience art. We have gone numerous times and have never been disappointed and the docents are well informed.
