Museum Hours & Admission

Appointment-Only Re-Opening Plan | August 1, 2020

The safety of our visitors and staff remain our number one priority.

Everyone at The Hyde Collection is thrilled to start welcoming visitors back to the Museum. Rest assured that we are following all of the guidelines and protocols from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s New York Forward, and Warren County. If you’re not feeling well, please delay your visit. (Please call our Admission Desk, 518-792-1761 ext. 350 to let them know you will not be able to make it in.) We ask that everyone take their temperature the day of your visit.

We can’t wait to see you at The Hyde!

Planning Your Visit

Starting August 1, 2020 visits to The Hyde Collection will be by appointment only. Please book your visit on our website prior to arriving at the Museum, and arrive at least five minutes before your designated time. Guests will remain outside the museum doors until the front desk is clear of visitors, and are asked to put on a face mask before entering. Upon arrival, Museum guests will receive an easy-to-follow tour route, with arrows and designated viewing areas marked on the floor to avoid the clustering of groups. Hand sanitizers are located throughout the galleries, and disinfecting wipes are provided in the restrooms and elevator areas. Audio tours and a rules and regulations guide will be provided upon check-in. We do not need a printed ticket—just a confirmation number
