Long Island Museum

Stony Brook, New York

The mission of the Long Island Museum of American Art, History & Carriages is to inspire understanding and appreciation of America's multifaceted social and cultural heritage, with an emphasis on Long Island and its people. In support of its mission, three separate museums and five historic structures spread across nine acres exhibit nationally and internationally recognized collections of art, a vast collection of horse-drawn vehicles, and other historic artifacts. The Long Island Museum promotes educational and aesthetic experiences that enrich the lives of the broadest possible audience. The Museum regularly collaborates with the Smithsonian on traveling exhibitions, artifact loans, and public programs by Smithsonian scholars.
