A Day Worth Waiting For: HRM Reopens to the Public Tomorrow!

At long last, the Hudson River Museum is reopening to the public this Saturday, July 25. We are so excited to welcome you back.

Black Lives Matter

The Hudson River Museum unequivocally believes that Black Lives Matter. This time, it is George Floyd; before him, it was Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Atatiana Jefferson, Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, and many others. We say their names.

Inspiration and Hope in the Landscape

In light of the challenges we are enduring as an institution and as a community, it gives me great pride and pleasure to share with you the very good news that the HRM’s exhibition, Maya Lin: A River Is a Drawing (October 2018–January 2019), has been identified as one of the best curated art exhibitions worldwide by the Global Fine Art Awards.

Reimagining Distance with Creative Cohesion

Beyond our walls, the Museum leadership and staff are hard at work, steadfast and committed to our mission to engage, inspire, and connect diverse communities through the power of the arts, sciences, and history. We encourage you to stay connected to us through #MuseumFromHome.
