GLENS FALLS, NY – TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website, has recognized The Hyde Collection with the prestigious Certificate of Excellence. The award is earned through consistently great reviews from independent travelers from all over the world. The Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic Home is rated as the #1 destination in Glens Falls, NY.
The Hyde Collection is widely recognized as an irreplaceable cultural gem, a preeminent collection of European and American art, and Modern art. The Museum is the legacy of Louis and Charlotte Hyde and their gift to the Glens Falls-Lake George-Warren County region forms the cultural bedrock of these local communities.
“Mrs. Hyde believed art could change lives. That’s why she donated her home and her art collection to the community,” said Erin Coe, Director of The Hyde. “We believe that art can also change communities – that it can be a source of economic growth and opportunity, and create a powerful and unique experience for viewers. We’re very honored to receive this award from TripAdvisor and from our visitors.”
The Hyde annually welcomes about 30,000 visitors, nearly half of whom come from the Hudson Valley, the metropolitan New York area and New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. This year alone, the Museum has welcomed visitors from Canada, England, Italy, Norway and Russia and from 27 US states and the District of Columbia.
