Plan Your Visit

The Hudson River Museum is closed to the public until further notice.

The Hudson River Museum remains temporarily closed to visitors in compliance with the CDC guidelines and directives from New York Forward’s metrics about when we can safely reopen. All in-person public programs and events are cancelled until we receive further information from New York State. In the meantime, the Museum has pivoted to strong digital programming for audiences of all ages with Museum from Home.

The Hudson River Museum is part of the Lower Hudson Valley opening plans alongside other arts, education, and recreation organizations. We are optimistically working on plans to open the Museum in a limited capacity sometime this summer, with the understanding that museums are grouped in Phase 4 of Governor Cuomo’s plan. Therefore, our exact reopening date cannot be determined until businesses categorized as Phase I-3 have opened and met all of New York State criteria.

The HRM staff is currently working to ensure that we have the necessary safety precautions in place for when we reopen our galleries. We will be requiring visitors and staff to wear masks for entry, establishing admission timeslots to limit crowding, and increasing cleaning schedules.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Museum as soon as it’s safe to do so.
