Explore the Hudson River Museum

The Hudson River Museum’s mission is to use the power of arts, sciences, and history to engage, inspire, and connect diverse communities.

Tour the dynamic exhibitions and collections of American art, ranging from 19th-century Hudson River School paintings to contemporary art installations. The museum’s historic home, Glenview is on the National Register for Historic Places. Venture into this monument’s period rooms to gaze at its Gilded Age decorative arts.

Also, the museum offers the only public planetarium in Westchester County. If you’re curious about the universe, plan a visit to the planetarium to experience the mysteries and discoveries of the cosmos.


Each and ever week, you can anticipate learning and experiencing something new. Currently, the Hudson River Museum is showcasing the following exhibits:
