About The Hyde Collection
A Message from Candace Wait, Chair
Board of Trustees
The Hyde’s collection is a truly remarkable group of works and is a testament to the vision of our founder, Charlotte Pruyn Hyde, and her husband, Louis Fiske Hyde. Works from the collection – the Rembrandt, the Rubens, the Picasso, the Renoirs, and the Hassam, for instance – are constantly in demand by museums around the world as they plan their exhibitions. A large part of this collection is installed in the elegant atmosphere of historic Hyde House, an American Renaissance mansion built in 1912.
Mrs. Hyde’s most cherished ambition, however, was for her museum to be a delight, and open up new doors for the citizens and young people of Glens Falls and the region. She realized that The Hyde could actually change lives - which it has. Our educational programming impacts the lives of thousands of local children as well as families, adults, and seniors. It is this focus on learning, creativity, and self-development that is at the core of who we are as an institution.
We hope you and your family join us as we develop interesting exhibitions and related programming!
