Visit the Contemporary Special Exhibition
Our annual exhibition program OPEN HOUSE: Contemporary Art in Conversation with Cole is installed throughout the historic site from August 14 to November 18, 2018. Entrance is included in the price of a Guided Tour or Explore at Your Own Pace ticket. The installation is part of the 50 minute Guided Tour.
Visit the New Studio Special Exhibition
Our annual special exhibition of 19th century Hudson River School art is presented in the New Studio from May 1 to November 4, 2018. Entrance is included in the price of a Guided Tour or Explore at Your Own Pace ticket. As the New Studio is not part of the 50 minute Guided Tour, guests are invited to see the show before or after the tour.
What are Guided Tours?
Guided Tours are offered at select times only (see schedule below) and start on the hour, run about 50 minutes, and are limited to 12 guests at a time. Please arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the tour you wish to attend. Guests are invited to watch a short film on the Hudson River School in the Visitor Center prior to the start of the tour.
What is Explore at Your Own Pace?
Explore at Your Own Pace is offered at select times only (see schedule below) and includes the Main House, New Studio, special exhibitions, and Cole’s Old Studio. These historic spaces may be explored at your own pace, with educators on hand to answer questions. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before the museum closes, but we recommend that you allow at least one hour to fully enjoy your visit.
Reserving your Ticket
