Unbelievable exhibit by Maya. This Museum is a diamond in the rough. I'm sure it's a great site during the summer; located right off the Hudson River.

Smaller museum with great views as it sits along the Hudson. There’s the historic house attached to it that takes you back into history. They offer a lot of art courses, free and at charge. There’s an observatory too with free parking. Worth a visit

We came for the Maya Lin exhibit celebrating the magnificent extent of the Hudson and its tributaries, but wound up visiting the Glenfield Mansion and habitat exhibits as well. Something for everyone, even a free concert for kids. Nice way to spend half an afternoon.
