Fodor's Review

The 240-acre Hofstra campus includes the Hofstra Arboretum, which basically is spread throughout the entire campus. It counts more than 8,000 trees of 425 varieties, 50 outdoor sculptures, a 2-acre bird sanctuary, and a 40-foot stone labyrinth for meditation. 516/463–6623.

The Hofstra Museum has three main spaces in which it shows paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, decorative arts, African and Asian artifacts,

and other objects from its permanent collection: the Emily Lowe Gallery (Jun.–July, Mon.–Thurs. 10–4; rest of year, Tues.–Fri. 10–5 and weekends 1–5), in Emily Lowe Hall, and the Rochelle and Irwin A. Lowenfeld Conference and Exhibition Hall and the David Filderman Gallery, both in the main library. Temporary exhibits have covered a range of subjects from Web design to Long Island history. 516/463–5672. Free.
