“Inspirational on several levels”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

It is always inspiring to see and experience the sites that were part of the lives of famous people ( particularly painters ). The Hopper house is one such place. It is easy to see how his painting was effected by the quality of light throughout the house and around town. Many of the subjects of his paintings are still standing and you can take a walking tour using the map provided by the docents. The architecture and backstory of the house's construction is a delight for design and history buffs. The artifacts,i.e. Hopper's old bicycle and paint box are charming and make a human connection to the artist and his life, as do the caricatures of his relationship with his wife.
There is also an exhibit area for shows by other artists that changes periodically.
Don't miss going upstairs to see the bathroom and bedroom ( now a studio that is in use by a writer). Well worth an hour (or less) of your time.

“Hopper Home comes Alive”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Don't expect his paintings, but have imagination. Many of homes in town were used as details in his paintings.

“Awesome museum”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Set in Edward Hopper's actual home, this museum features some great works. We saw the photographs of Dorothea Lange presented in a wonderful manner. Thursday night concerts are wonderful here, too. The setting in Nyack is spectacular. Just across the street is "Pretty Penny" former home of Helen Hayes and Rosie O'Donnell, and also the subject of a famous Hopper painting. Not to be missed site in the Hudson Valley.
