  • 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.
