The historic home and studios of the Thomas Cole National Historic Site may be explored at your own pace, May-October, according to the schedule below. Guides are on hand to answer questions and provide insight in the Main House, the New and Old Studios, and special exhibitions. Please note that the museum closes at 5 pm; therefore the last admission will be at 4:30 pm. We recommend, however, that you allow at least one hour for your visit. You may purchase tickets in person or online.
