  • We were lucky enough to visit the house when it was just myself and my husband, so we got a solo tour from the lovely Gini. She was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, giving us real in-depth insigh...  more »
  • Edward Hopper is my all time favourite American artist so it was quite a thrill to visit his boyhood home in the town of Nyack. It's a quite understated home which gives you a good sense of the family...  more »
  • Even if there were no paintings, there was a delightful photo show using the Hopper paintings in real. There is a feeling of respect in all visitors.  more »

  • A waste of time and money. I was expecting a lot more memorabilia, insights into the artist's life... Something interesting for 7USD! I was so disappointed. Most rooms upstairs were shut to the public, only a bedroom and a crafts studio for visitors to take part in (if at the right time). 2 rooms downstairs had an exhibition of some contemporary artist whose style is at the opposite spectrum of Hopper. The other 2 had the reception/shop and finally some bits of Hopper art / stuff in. There's a lot of potential untapped, a real shame.
  • Thus is a little gem. A small house that takes very little time to visit. If you are a fan of Edward Hopper seeing the bedroom when sunlight floods in you will immediately recognize where Hopper gets his sense if light. The staff/docents are delightful and very knowledgable. Glad to have fibakky visited this historic place.
  • It is a quaint little house that helped forge an iconic American artist, and when you visit you can see just how Edward was inspired from his upstairs suite. The view of the Hudson is not the best, but is indeed inspiring. There are done great pieces here to view and the tour is quite a delight.
  • Amazing learning center and museum! Many works by Hopper to see and many more pictures since the last time I visited. A true Hopper lover must place Hopper House on their bucket list!!
  • I very much enjoyed my visit to the Hopper house. Don't expect any of his larger or more famous paintings- but rather the home is filled with intimate views into his personal life and growth as an artist. I loved seeing a variety of drawings and studies of his, as well as some personal artifacts like a set of oil paints. The center also has an exhibit for contemporary artists, which I was not expecting. This month's work was really quite interesting and played nicely off the Hopper legacy. Lastly, they offer a great student's discount and the staff were incredibly helpful and pleasant. A must-visit for any Hopper fan!
