  • A gem of a museum. It sounds like a small local museum but the have the world's biggest collection of beautifully restored nineteenth century carriages. There are many other things to see also related to local history and art from some local artists. Well worth a visit.
  • A nice museum that shows some history of Long Island. Would highly recommend especially if you want to spend a couple of hours here.
  • The carriage museum is great. The other buildings have revolving exhibits. Most Suffolk libraries have free passes
  • Had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful not only about the museum but about local events and establishments of interest. The carriage displays were very interesting and well displayed. The bootleg display was informative as wer e the restored buildings and content. Would recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant, at your own pace experience.
  • I have not been to this museum in over 20 years. It has changed and expanded. The exhibition of carriages is extensive. I think it would enhance the experience to have docent tours once or twice a day. As there is so much to see in the carriage exhibit halls that it becomes overwhelming reading all the placards.There also is an a separate art museum and art installations on the property. The mobile sculptures and the crocheted tree cover art installation were impressive.
