Word on the Street

A science museum, an art museum, and a planetarium are all rolled into one special place, the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, NY.  The museum includes the Andrus Planetarium, a Victorian home called the Glenview, and an environmental teaching gallery, the Hudson Riverama.  Each part of the museum is a learning experience for all ages.By checking the schedule online, you can find a star show that is appropriate for your child at the Andrus Planetarium.  The Friendly Stars begins at 12:30 and is geared to children ages 4 - 7.  It introduces young skywatchers to the sun and stars.  They use their imaginations to make pictures from the clouds and stars.  Next stop is the Huson Riverama.  This interactive hands-on exhibit allows you to guide your child through the forests, marshes, and Lower Hudson estuary that are all a part of the Hudson River.  Don't forget to pick up a passport guide so that you can earn stamps as you answers questions correctly in each of the stations.Before visiting the Glenview, stop in to visit Red Groom's The Bookstore.  Young and old alike will be amazed as you stand inside this pictorama and admire all the details.  Play a game of I Spy while observing each part of The Bookstore.  When ready, head outside to the Victorian home, the Glenview.  Head upstairs to view a very large dollhouse - a favorite of the preschool age.  The Hudson River Museum is a short cab ride away from the MetroNorth Hudson line Yonkers station.
