Pollock-Krasner House Description
Tap your creative side -- and hone your baby's inner art critic -- at the Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center. Adults and teens interested in abstract expressionism will enjoy touring the house, which includes Pollock's personal effects and hundreds of cherished jazz records, and the photo essay documenting Pollock's career. The main attraction is the studio where Pollack painted his most famous works. It's fun to change into complimentary slippers and gingerly walk upon his paint-splattered floor (a work of art in itself).
Babies: Take the frontpack: strollers are not allowed.
