“Hudson history revealed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The Hudson is arguably the country's most important waterway. British and Colonial troops fought for possession of the river during the Revolution. It served as the main avenue of commerce during the 1800s. The Hudson has been called the most beautiful waterway in the nation, rivaling the Norwegian fjords. It and the associated Erie Canal made New York the great city that it is. The Hudson River Museum recounts its history. Every New Yorker should visit the museum to gain an appreciation of this natural wonder.

“Jerry Pinkney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

A beautiful exhibit of the works of Jerry Pinkney. I only knew him as a children's book illustrator. He has done so much more. Interesting man.

Great place to take the kids and give them a sense of the history of the Hudson region. Some hands on exihibits that could be better if they were kept up.

“Small but Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

It's quaint and has a planetarium. There's a lot to see regarding the Hudson River. It's a place you can see within an hour or two.
