  • A must see. Really educational and visually astounding. I’ve been several times. It’s never crowded. The largest collection of antique carriages, sleds and fire trucks.  more »
  • I found it almost by accident, because I got lost in the back from Stony Brook Village. Luckily I found it, since it was a very interesting experience. There are carriages from all sides and all times, with interactive stations, videos, explanations, etc. The atmosphere is excellent. There are discounts for students. From the outside is not noticed how great that is! Visit not to be missed if you pass by this place!

  • This is my 3rd visit to the museum (giving a presentation) and the first time had the opportunity to walk the grounds and visit the Carriage Museum and the the Art Gallery. SOO worth admission!! If you live near by or passing through make this a visit. The grounds you can experience a Blacksmith Shop, Stables, One-room School and an Outhouse! The Carriage Museum is very impressive! With my limited time I learned how important carriages were in the building the history of our country. The Art Gallery, currently has an exhibition of Slavery on Long Island... honestly something one doesn't think about.
  • We visited the art studio at the museum, with Seniors who have different types of dimentia. The museum staff were very helpful , kind and encouraging.
