Nice small museum. Had a good show. Downside is that if you have trouble walking there is a long walk from the parking lot to the museum.

This museum at SUNY New Paltz has changing and interesting exhibits. I always find something, if not many things, to admire. I like a smallish museum like this, you need only spend an hour or so and get a wallop of an experience. It is...More

It's always a surprise to walk in the doors of this museum because it's just so surprising, after walking through the brick buildings of dorms and classrooms. 2 wings, one wing is new, tall and bright, and the other is tall and dark terrazzo floored....More
