This is another unique place--one can walk (with paper slippers (provided) on his drips!! A spectacular setting overlooking the water. The house is interesting and hosts exhibits during the season. Guided tours are available with reservations. Self guided audio tours are also available.

The Pollack-Krasner House is a remarkably well preserved home. The audio tour was helpful as we roamed the two floors of their private home. The barn (their art studio) was so great- the ink remnants gave a great feel for all the awesome art created there. A must for those in EH.

It so exciting and moving... More

We LOVE your enthusiasm! So glad you enjoyed your visit to the fully air-conditioned museum. OK, no cafeteria, but you can get a great lunch around the corner at the Springs General Store, where Jackson and Lee used to shop. Try it next time you come--we'd LOVE to have you back! More

This is a quiet location which makes it feel more intimate and therefore rewarding. To be seeing where the great works were created and something of his living conditions. Great visit.

The Pollock-Krasner House is a great place to take your kids on the weekend. They get to splatter paint like Jackson Pollock and generally have a great time. If you are in the area and have children, please take them. They'll love it.
