It presents exhibitions, programs, teaching initiatives, research, collection, preservation, and conservation – a wide range of activities that interpret its collections, interests and communities.

What can a donation of $100 on #GivingTuesdayNow do? The HRM is working directly with educators and school children throughout Westchester County, providing curriculum-aligned lesson plans on art, science, and history.

We are also spearheading special projects on empathy and mutual understanding like “Outside My Window,” an open invitation to K-12 students to submit an artwork on their own experiences sheltering-in-place for a community exhibition which we will proudly feature online and at the Museum when we reopen.

Your gift will support our outreach both virtually through our digital #MuseumFromHome initiative and in person once the Museum reopens.

If you donate $250 or more you can have your very own Star of the Century with your name on it or buy one in tribute to someone you love—your mom for Mother’s Day, a graduate, for a birthday, or in honor of a brave frontline worker. We will display the star on our website and as a handsome star-shaped plaque at the HRM once we reopen.

Longtime HRM trustee Bonnie Bell-Curran and her husband Gerard Curran purchased a star today to mark the happy occasion of their granddaughter’s first birthday! Congrats to the Curran and Messervy familes!
