When people talk about the heart of Huntington, they often refer to The Paramount, The Book Revue or the Cinema Arts Centre—fine institutions all. But the original cultural crown jewel of Long Island’s SoHo is this nearly century-old museum of art. With roots in the Gold Coast’s Gilded Age, the museum’s collection includes thousands of works dating to the early 16th century. Look to them for some of the most thought-provoking exhibits around.
