“fostering a deeper understanding of the arts”
Ranked among the nation's largest, most important suburban art museums, 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 addition to the Arnold & Joan Saltzman Fine Art building, Nassau County Museum of Art includes the Sculpture Park, Formal Garden of historic importance, the Pinetum, an architecturally-significant restored trellis, rare specimen trees, marked walking trails, and the Art School where an extensive array of beginning to advanced art classes are held for adults and children.
It's a small museum, but the grounds are vast and beautiful. There are hiking trails that feature sculptures from many different artists. Plus there are many non native plants on the property, including two red wood trees!
