  • Good house and New Studio tour. They do have some original works as well as sketches and studies. The grounds aren't much but it's well worth a visit for the buildings and the insight into Mr Cole's like and work. Arrival is a little tricky and Google Maps directions weren't great for parking. It's probably easier to enter the temple next-door as your destination because it's basically in the Thomas Cole parking lot. The sign is easier to see if you're not coming from highway 23 so if you miss it, just circle back.
  • a nice stop to learn about Thomas Cole. you can spend 2 or 3 hours here. thought there would be more to the inside of the home but its more than worth the price. don't miss
  • A beautiful tree intense home setting to visit. Well kept grounds. Vegetable garden with period plants. Includes a newer gallery building with changing art exhibits.
  • Beautiful Museum, and nicely organized. Well preserved historical details.
  • Excellent site. Great multimedia setup brings the history alive.
