Nassau County Museum of Art Review

A wedding gift in 1919 from industrialist Henry Clay Frick to his son and daughter-in-law, this Georgian brick mansion, designed by Ogden Codman Jr., in 1900, now houses an art museum. The permanent collection contains 600 works from 19th- and 20th-century European and American artists, including Edouard Vuillard, Roy Lichtenstein, Moses Soyer, George Segal, Auguste Rodin, Alex Katz, and Frederick Warren Freer. The museum sits amid 145 groomed acres with rose, azalea, and other gardens. Scattered across the grounds are 20 unique abstract and stylized sculptures, including Jaguar by Anna Vaughn Hyatt, Moonlight Goddess by Reuben Nakian, and Caring by Chaim Gross. The Tee Ridder Miniatures Museum, also on the grounds, holds a collection of 26 miniature rooms.
