We enjoy coming here occasionally. The docents are knowledgable and the exhibits change regularly. The sculpture garden and the grounds are nice to walk around during the warm weather

Another visit to the Nassau County Museum of Art did not disappoint. Modern art graced the walls of the mansion. Nice to see greats like Leger, Picasso, Renoir, Matisse right in our own backyard. This gem of a museum is not large, but carefully curated...More

The art is usually very well curated and the museum itself is small enough to do in a comfortable hour or so. The outdoor sculpture gardens are gorgeous as are the grounds.

The museum has rotating exhibits. Check what will be there when you arrive. We loved the recent Chinese exhibit. In addition, the exhibit of modern works donated by the Saltzmann family was spectacular.

I suspect kids would not appreciate most or all of the museum exhibits. The park surrounding the museum has some nice large outdoor sculptures and people do picnic on the lawn at times, but this, too, is not much for kids.
