Museum Tour
Hudson River Museum - Nybylwyck Hall Dollhouse

Thursday, September 19
10:30am to 4:30pm

Instructor: Christine Hannon (A)

Enjoy an afternoon with friends exploring the Hudson River Museum, home of the Nybylwyck Hall Dollhouse. Created by dollhouse enthusiast Mark O’Banks (1956–2002) Nybylwyck Hall is unique for both design and level of detail.

Included is a guided tour of Glenview mansion, as seen in the HBO series The Gilded Age. Glenview features fine woodwork, furnishings, decorative objects, paintings, and sculptures. The rest of our visit will allow for walking the grounds and art galleries, including the show "A Feast for the Eyes: Sumptuous Still Lives."

Transportation and museum admission/tour are included. Weather permitting, we will stop for folks to pick up a quick lunch to eat on the museum grounds. If raining, we will eat at the restaurant before heading to the museum.
