“Unique Little Art Museum”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Huntington is a historical town on Long Island's North Shore. Hecksher Park is a family oriented place for kids and octogenarians alike. It has a great playground and a sizeable lake for leisurely walks. The bandstand houses nightly musical treats for all the family....bring your own chair, snacks and blanket. Inside the park is a little art museum which shows some of the great artworks, The show is ever changing and the admission is cheap for what you see. Hassam, Seurat, Chagall and many others can be seen here. Call ahead to learn about the art schedule. But when on the North Shore, don't miss it!

“Hechscher Park and Museum, Huntington, Long Island”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The exhibits like the one on Muybridge and motion in the twentieth century are interesting. The park itself is smaller that I expected but pretty with ponds and ducks and children's playground..

“Just the right size”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Museums are often too large. This one has 2 or three shows at any one time and they are intelligently presented. Too bad museums have such a dead interior atmosphere. How about a little music? We need some new blood in museum curating! Bring it up to date.

“Excellent local museum”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The exhibits vary and it is quite a good museum for suburbia. Diversity of exhibits and something for all ages.

“An Underappreciated Gem of Huntington!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

If you have to live on Long Island, one of the best places to be is Huntington,, and the reason is because of its burgeoning art and music scene. Heckscher Park is a center for this, with the Chapin Stage and as the site of the annual Fall Fair. There is always something new and cool at the museum. In the summer there are music events outside the steps. A nice way to spend an afternoon.
