Kunstmuseum
“Most New Yorkers overlook Connecticut’s only contemporary art museum, but it’s an easy and worthwhile day trip. The building, a former barn, was renovated into a contemporary museum that’s painted white with wood accents. It has two floors of gallery space dedicated to boundary-pushing exhibitions, and it overlooks a two-acre sculpture garden. The Aldrich is worth repeat visits. Because they are a non-collecting institution, their program is always changing. Some recent hits have been Virginia Overton, Steve diBenedetto, and Nancy Shaver.”

History Museum
“Sunnyside (1835) is a historic house on 10 acres along the Hudson River, in Tarrytown, New York. It was the home of the American author Washington Irving, best known for his short stories, such as "Rip Van Winkle" (1819) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820). This cottage-like estate, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962, reflects Dutch Colonial Revival, Scottish Gothic, and Tudor Revival influences, with its wisteria-covered entrance and jagged crow-stepped gable. Open Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday.”

“The history of this beautiful estate dates back to the 17th Century, when Thomas Pell signed a treaty with the Siwanoy Indians to purchase what is now the Bronx borough. Located within today’s Pelham Bay Park, the current house was built between 1836 and 1842, and was sold to the City of New York in 1888. Re-opened as a museum in 1946, it now offers tours of its furnishings, carriage house and formal gardens.”
