imageFounder's Statement

As stated by Mrs. Hyde in her 1952 Trust Agreement establishing The Hyde Collection, our founding mission is "to maintain a Museum for the exhibition of the permanent collection and to promote and cultivate the improvement of the fine arts, for the education and benefit of the residents of Glens Falls and vicinity and the general public."

Mission Statement

The Hyde's mission today is to be an art museum in a historic house complex that is unique between Manhattan and Montreal, committed to developing and highlighting a collection of international importance, creating exhibitions of regional and national significance, while providing invigorating educational programs to its core local audiences and communities. In all its activities, The Hyde Collection strives to be a leader locally and regionally, among a handful of art museums in New England and northern New York that are nationally recognized for their excellence and for their cultural and economic impact.

The Hyde Collection is a member of the Museum Association of New York and accredited by the American Association of Museums.
