    Nice place to visit if you are in the area. very close to PepsiCo. We got there too late in the afternoon to do both. Plan ahead and check closing times. Very pleasant staff. Nice gift store.

    Lovely small museum on the grounds of SUNY Purchase stopped in while on a college visit. Students and their families are entitled to visit free of charge. The exhibitions change and they hold a series of events here. The African art display was worth the visit. Nice way to spend a few hours in the afternoon.

    Beautiful and interesting artifacts, statues, .crafts from the Congo, South Africa, And other African nations. Exit is arranged very attractively, not crowded together, and not overwhelming. LoveLy way to spend an hour or two.

    This is a very good college art museum with four large rooms and a variety of art on display, the building was designed by Philip Johnson in 1974 and has 79,000 square feet of exhibit space. Mainstream art is upstairs in a large gallery with a skylight that admits some natural light. There are three other large galleries on the first floor used for sculpture, large painting and special exhibits, and a small African gallery behind the stairwell. The cost is $5 which is a bargain; rest rooms are in the basement with stairs and an elevator. While most of the art was family friendly they had one installation on the glass windows overlooking the courtyard that was very offensive. Visually, it looks like dirty windows; you have to read the sign to understand why it is offensive. While at SUNY, be sure to walk through the Dance building. It is a wonderful building filled with light and music. Also, they have lots of large scale sculpture on the grounds, you can see it driving the ring road (Brigid Flanagan Drive) but there aren’t places to park at the sculptures. Note that it is a good 10 minute walk from the parking lot to the Art Museum, but there are lots of signs to direct you. They are reworking parts of the campus, so there isn’t a direct route. Parking: Unlike most college art museums, there appears to be plenty of parking at SUNY Purchase. But they don’t make it easy for you. I stopped at the shelter entering the parking lot (like the signs said) and waited 5 minutes and no one came to my car though I could see people working at a nearby building. I finally pulled up to that building and they gave me funny looks. I went into the building and bought a parking pass for $6 but they acted like I was really bothering them. The lady told me to park at number 2, and told her I had no idea where that was and they ushered me out the door. SUNY really needs to re-evaluate the people running the parking lot. Their rudeness and indifference really ruined my visit.

    Supper small museum for one guys incredible exercise of good taste. The current exhibit was disappointing-- it's hard to be a curator these days-- but the permanent display part of Roy Neuberger's personal collection was wonderful.

    Nice space, once you get around all the SUNY Purchase construction. Enjoyed the variety of artists in the permanent exhibition on the second floor. Good accessibility.

    This museum at the State University of NY at Purchase is a cultural asset to Westchester NY and Fairfield CT Counties. Small, its permanent collection is specialized with strength in Sub-Saharan African and contemporary art. Exhibitions change periodically throughout the year. I always go to whatever African shows they put on as the collection consists of objects you're not likely to see elsewhere. The gift shop is small, focuses on children. Stroller and wheelchair accessible.

    It's off the beaten art path, located as it is on the SUNY-Purchase campus in Purchase, NY, but this is a fine museum to visit. Renovated within the past few years, the Neuberger has its own permanent collection, but also features other shows. The current exhibition of Kuba textiles, much of it seen for the first time in any museum, is a case in point. There is a nice gift shop, of course, parking on campus is easy, and the admission fees are nominal. Definitely worth a visit.

    Current exhibit on Plastics and Kuma Textiles are very interesting and worth a visit. Hard to find on campus.

    This museum is located on the campus of SUNY Purchase. It is open to the public and well worth a visit. The permanent collection is quite unique with a glimpse into the roots of contemporary art. The current show is always unique, interesting, and a learning experience. Don't miss it if you are in Purchase. Then cross over to the Pepsi Sculpture Gardens.

    Great collection. Really nice staff. Beautiful, thoughtful juxtaposition of artwork. Main problem is finding the place. There's construction on the Purchase campus and signage is lacking. Ask around or you won't find it.

    Visited during this past weekends 'Family Weekend' at SUNY Purchase...had a preconceived notion that this was going to be a slight bit more scintillating because of the build-up that the University gives was interesting, with the most interesting art being a Russian collection, and several artistic films...upstairs contemporary art was cool, just wish there was more..

    I happened upon this museum when trying to see the nearby PepsiCo Sculpture Garden which was closed for construction. I viewed a number of very interesting abstract pieces, videos, and pieces by some well-known artists. My personal reactions told me that this was great viewing. Glad I found this museum. Note: The museum is on the SUNY Purchase campus. Once on the campus, I did not see a sign that directed me to the museum, until I parked the car and found a "you are here" sign that set me on the right path.

    It is a small museum but it is worth a visit. It was initiated in 1974 with Roy R. Neuberger's donation of 108 works of art. The collection of African is interesting. Also there are some pictures by famous American painters like Andy Warhol and Edward Hopper's The Barber Shop: This is the largest work Hopper ever created. The Museum is inside SUNY Purchase. We walked around the campus and I was impressed by how clean and green it was.

    Hard to find on the Purchase College campus and then not much to see - special exhibits were weird but change so that is what to go for. We found the gift shop to be the most interesting and did not think it was great. At least it is not expensive to get in.

    The museum is a cavernous space --- in fact, the whole campus seems to be built on a monumental scale, with lots of paved plazas and strangely shaped buildings. Despite the size of the space, you can see it all in 2-3 hours (and that's assuming there's a big traveling exhibit). We enjoyed both the permanent exhibit and the traveling exhibit. Permanent collection of African art was first-rate, and it was supported with helpful information. Upstairs collection of modern paintings was good, and it included well-known names (Hopper, Beardon, etc.). The traveling exhibit was about Israelis and Palestinians, and it had some fascinating pieces of video art and large-scale photos. Make sure to also get info about sculpture on campus.

    I said this is a "very good" museum, not in comparison to the Met, but realizing that it's a small, university museum. Nelson Rockefeller got Mr. Neuberger to donate his art collection at the creation of this art-focused state college, SUNY at Purchase. This is all modern art. The current exhibit is usually edgy and for a lot of us a but on the weird side. But also usually interesting. The permanent exhibit, mostly Mr. Neuberger's, is world-class (mostly modern) art. Very worth the visit, right near White Plains in Westchester County. Modest fee. You might combine it with a concert at the performing arts center.
