The museum has rotating exhibits. Check what will be there when you arrive. We loved the recent Chinese exhibit. In addition, the exhibit of modern works donated by the Saltzmann family was spectacular.

This is a gem of a museum on the north shore. The grounds are kept so beautifully and the museum has a nice rotating collection of artwork. So glad they have a place like this on Long Island!

I suspect kids would not appreciate most or all of the museum exhibits. The park surrounding the museum has some nice large outdoor sculptures and people do picnic on the lawn at times, but this, too, is not much for kids.
