An alligator, monkey, and bear! Oh my! The Nassau County Museum of Art is having a special “choose your own adventure” day as the museum opens for families only.

Look back a century at the mansion when it was home to four children with all of their fantastical pets this special “blended-option” event. Upon registration families will be able to pick up a supply kit of art projects to complete in the coziness of their own home, and choose whether to go on an indoor or outdoor scavenger hunt at the Museum building (or both!). Families will receive a link to a special 15 minute video sharing the secrets of our Mansion to watch as they create their art at home. Video link will be sent to email address used for registration. 

Timed, ticketed sessions will maintain a limited capacity inside the museum building for those choosing to participate in the indoor scavenger hunt. Masks required for individuals over the age of 2.

    Ranked among the nation's largest, most important suburban art museums, Nassau County Museum of Art is located about 25 miles east of New York City in Roslyn Harbor, Long Island, on the former Frick Estate, in the heart of Long Island's fabled Gold Coast. The main museum building, named in honor of art collectors and philanthropists Arnold and Joan Saltzman, is a three-story Georgian mansion that exemplifies Gold Coast architecture of the late 19th century.

    In addition to the Arnold & Joan Saltzman Fine Art building, Nassau County Museum of Art includes the Sculpture Park, Formal Garden of historic importance, the Pinetum, an architecturally-significant restored trellis, rare specimen trees, and marked walking trails.
