  • This museum was not only interesting but had such a cool exhibit of pieces of wood made to represent water. You could walk on the paths of wood/water. Not very expensive to get in and worth it.  more »
  • We were very impressed by the gallery spaces, huge, bright, and inviting. There are currently three exhibits on display, all by artists that we were unfamiliar with. The bird paintings were the most.....  more »

  • What a fun place. The exhibits were extremely different. The bird paintings were quite vibrant. I looked forward to the map exhibit, yet found it a bit depressing. Loved the You Can Dream It exhibition much more than I expected. It took us slightly over an hour to take it all in. We wished there were more exhibits.
  • An interesting place to chill out and slowly wander through the gallery. When I visited they had a an exhibit by Ann Craven who is known for her bird paintings. Good way to pass an hour or so. Once you are done it's a short walk to the center of Rockland.
