Nassau County Museum of Art

Nassau County Museum of Art Ranked among the nation's largest, most important suburban art museums, Nassau County Museum of Art is 145 acres of art, gardens & sculpture

Nassau County Museum of Art is located about 25 miles east of New York City in Roslyn Harbor, Long Island on the former Frick Estate, a spectacular property in the heart of Long Island's fabled Gold Coast. The main museum building, named in honor of art collectors and philanthropists Arnold and Joan Saltzman, is a three-story Georgian mansion that exemplifies Gold Coast architecture of the late 19th century. In 2017, the museum inaugurated The Manes Family Art & Education Center. This new facility has allowed the museum to expand its menu of programs and works on view. Nassau County Museum of Art preserves, enhances, and interprets its collections for the people of Long Island, the State of New York and beyond. The museum is dedicated to fostering a deeper understanding of the arts, with particular emphasis on the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries; to enhancing and adding to its outdoor sculpture garden, to continuing to improve its historic gardens and to keeping an active schedule of exhibitions and educational programs for people of all ages and backgrounds.

The Mansion is closed for show change and will open July 20th for our next exhibit, "Energy, The Power of Art". In the m...
