One of our favorite Think Olio professors is the director of the immaculate Nassau Country Museum of Art on Long Island. We've decided we need to make a trip out for a private tour on the closing day of each one of his shows. So join us for the third trip to see 150 acres of nature trails, contemporary sculptures, and of course the unbelievable art lining the walls of the old Frick mansion.
Take the Long Island Railroad Port Washington line from Penn Station to the Manhasset station. If you catch the 1:18pm train then we will be there to pick you up at the station and give you a ride to the museum. Bring snacks for a picnic and we'll provide the wine! After an hour or so, we will begin and Riley will lead us through a wild tour of his gorgeous museum.From Penn Station To Manhasset – 1:18 PM to 1:58 PM – 40 mins – Off Peak
