We spent an afternoon at this little museum and were pleasantly surprised. When we arrived I thought we'd be there for a short time as the museum is small. The docent on duty at the time struck up a conversation with us and gave us what amounted to a private tour of the museum and wonderful explanations of everything in... More

We have visited this museum twice in the past month. The exhibition featuring Long Island Artists was excellent. The current exhibition "Norman Rockwell and Friends: American Illustrations from the Mort Kuntsler Collection" is also excellent. The Museum has a "First Friday" series with free Museum Admission and a musical performance at 7 p.m.

We were going to visit the museum but today Sunday Oct16 was a gorgeous day. We decided to take a stroll around Heckscher Park . What a beautiful well manicured park just east of the 25a/ New York Ave intersection. Follow the signs for the "Heckscher Museum" . The park sits right next to it . What a nice Park.... More

My daughter and I attended a wonderful community art event today at the Heckscher. There were various opportunities to do artistic projects, listen to music by the East End Trio (who were really great....talented), and enjoy the beautiful park in which the Museum is situated. There were people there of all ages and there were activities for children as well... More

I checked the website and saw no notification they were closed. When I arrived all there was was a guy inside, who did open the door to tell me they were completely closed for renovation. OK, somebody put that on the website, there are some of us who will travel long distances to visit, but feel disrespected when you can't... More

After visiting a number of times we became museum members which facilitated admission and provided invitations to special showing and events. From time to time, they have programs and exhibits of interest to children. Our seven year old grandson loves visiting the museum and will attend a children's art class the coming summer.

Heckscher Park is probably my most favorite places in the entire world. I love the playground, the duck pond, little islands and the bridges from one to another and mostly the weeping willows that drape into the lake and drop flower petals into the water. The museum is well done and such a nice place to take the kids.
