Wonderful collection of Tiffany paintings along with some lamps and glass. And a little bit of everything else incl modern, pop, posters, current, etc. Had an interesting collection of rarely seen Audubon Animals prints. (No birds). Favorite were... More

This small art museum is one of our special places to visit. They often have special exhibits which are unique. We took our 11 year old grandson there and he was captivated by the paintings. There is an outdoor sculpture garden which is a delight to wander through in the warm weather. A number of years ago they had a... More

The cold weather during our visit forced us to inside visits. We came upon the Nassau County Museum in a beautiful park setting. While the museum does have a small collection if Tiffany paintings, most of it is given over the special exhibits. An extensive Chinese exhibition was very well placed and annotated. Items from the Frick collection were rare... More

Nassau County Museum has some of the finest art exhibits in the World. The Chine Exhibit was beautiful and well persented. I must say, some years ago, they had a Fine Arts Competition that I won a First Prize, $500, Best in Show Award. It would be nice if they would reconsider having some Art Competitions in such a lovely... More

Not only did I enjoy the China exhibit, but I also had a great time walking around the building and strolling around. Formerly a private Gold Coast estate, the grounds are lovely, the sculptures are delightful and well placed just off garden paths, and the mansion itself a Georgian Colonial gem.

Even though the museum is very nice, what kept me coming here is the trails outside and the gardens. I used to bring my baby on his stroller for walks around the asphalt road. Now that he is older we love going into the woods and explore the trails. During the week, if you go to visit the grounds is... More

To avoid crowds on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I went to the Nassau County Museum of Art to see “China Then and Now.” (On view through March 8, 2015.) The exhibit includes a few ancient statues, a large collection of blue & white porcelains, beautiful ink paintings by Liu Dan, and examples of contemporary Chinese art. If you are in... More

The grounds are reason enough to visit this delightful gem from a time goneby....gorgeous sculptures dot the many acres of walking trails and the parking is free and ample. I am a fan of art museums and attend all their exhibits, most of them carefully organized and curated. I am simply amazed that so few people attend this cultural jewel....I... More
