We were going to visit the museum but today Sunday Oct16 was a gorgeous day. We decided to take a stroll around Heckscher Park . What a beautiful well manicured park just east of the 25a/ New York Ave intersection. Follow the signs for the "Heckscher Museum" . The park sits right next to it . What a nice Park.... More

My daughter and I attended a wonderful community art event today at the Heckscher. There were various opportunities to do artistic projects, listen to music by the East End Trio (who were really great....talented), and enjoy the beautiful park in which the Museum is situated. There were people there of all ages and there were activities for children as well... More

I checked the website and saw no notification they were closed. When I arrived all there was was a guy inside, who did open the door to tell me they were completely closed for renovation. OK, somebody put that on the website, there are some of us who will travel long distances to visit, but feel disrespected when you can't... More

After visiting a number of times we became museum members which facilitated admission and provided invitations to special showing and events. From time to time, they have programs and exhibits of interest to children. Our seven year old grandson loves visiting the museum and will attend a children's art class the coming summer.

Heckscher Park is probably my most favorite places in the entire world. I love the playground, the duck pond, little islands and the bridges from one to another and mostly the weeping willows that drape into the lake and drop flower petals into the water. The museum is well done and such a nice place to take the kids.

The Heckscher Museum of Art keeps finding new ways to show off their fabulous collection of mainly American art. The George Grosz piece, "Eclipse of the Sun", probably the most famous painting on Long Island, is back in its space after a trip on loan around the country..The curator is a genius! Don't miss it! And then - take a... More

This is a small museum, but very tasteful. I enjoyed a piece called "Rape of Proserpine", and the staff was very helpful in describing its mood, tone, and background. Their temporary and permanent exhibits set a nice variation. I really have to credit the staff once again; very helpful. It was nice to meet someone who knew their background information... More

This is a small museum. They have some good permanent art exhibits and travelling shows. It's worth seeing. The park around it is beautiful too.
