Fodor's Review

The museum, a wonderful example of beaux-arts architecture two blocks from downtown Huntington, houses more than 1,800 paintings, sculptures, and drawings. The permanent collection spans more than five centuries of European and American art, including Georgia O'Keeffe's Machu Picchu (Peruvian Landscape) and contemporary work by artist Olafur Eliasson. The museum also hosts impressive traveling exhibits. It's on the grounds of pleasant Heckscher Park, which has a playground, pond, tennis courts, and a band shell.
