Plan a Visit

Come for a visit and make a day of it.

Whether you’re visiting a friend, taking a tour, or viewing marvelous artwork, we recommend planning ahead before your visit. Please check below for visiting requirements, including vaccination, masking, and identification.

Once you’re here, take your time and look around. Enjoy breakfast or lunch at the River Café next to the fireplace and views of the Hudson River. Walk the outdoor Sculpture Garden. Take in the scenic views of the Hudson River and The Palisades. Tour the Derfner Judaica Art Museum + Art Collection. With over 32 acres of walkable campus, there is a lot to cover and much to see, do, and experience.

We welcome residents, visitors, and community groups to our campus to experience both The Art Collection and the works in the Derfner Judaica Museum. Both collections are free to visit and open to the public.

Please check out our Online Collections Database of Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection at Hebrew Home at Riverdale.
