The Art Nest: Open Saturdays from 12–5 PM.
Our hours change throughout the year. When our summer or winter exhibitions are on view, we have regular gallery hours on the weekends. We're also open whenever we hold an event.
Any other time, we’re not open. That said, we're probably still working in the mill, so please email us if you'd like to make an appointment to view our shows or tour our campus! There's also plenty of public art throughout Wassaic that's visible all day, every day.
We’re located right at the end of Metro-North’s Harlem line, a ~2.5-hour ride from Grand Central. Once you’re here, just walk along the Harlem Valley Rail extension into town. Maxon Mills is at the end of the trail on the right. You can’t miss it.
Save a few dollars on a round-trip ticket by purchasing our MTA Away package at any Metro-North ticket office or machine!
Our address is 37 Furnace Bank Road, Wassaic, NY 12592. Parking is available at Maxon Mills, The Lantern, and Luther Barn. Limited street parking is available as well. Try to carpool, especially for our larger events!
Only the ground floor of Maxon Mills is climate controlled. In the summer, the tower gets hot, so consider bringing water. In the winter, bring a coat. There are also benches on most floors of the mill if you'd like to take a rest.
Free parking is available at Maxon Mills. On busy event days, we open extra parking around town.
The ground floor of Maxon Mills has a wheelchair lift and an ADA-compliant bathroom accessible from outside. Maxon Mills does not have an elevator at this time. Visitors who need to move around, twitch, pace, or not make eye contact are welcome. If you have access needs not addressed here, email us and we’ll work with you to support them.
Photos and videos are encouraged for personal, noncommercial use. If you'd like to photograph our video our spaces outside of those contexts, email us.
Three bathrooms are available on the ground floor of Maxon Mills. One of these bathrooms is ADA-compliant, accessible from outside, and contains a changing station.
Kids are always welcome! Please make sure your kids don't run in the mill or touch the art, though.
Strollers + nursing
Baby strollers are welcome, but there is no stroller access to the upper floors of Maxon Mills. Nursing mothers who would like quiet and privacy should inquire at our front desk.
Dogs are welcome at any of our outdoor events, but we’d prefer if you leave dogs at home or on the mill porch when visiting Maxon Mills. The mill is tricky to clean and the art is fragile!
This list is by no means comprehensive! These are unsponsored recommendations for the kinds of places our small staff like to take our friends. We find new things to do up here every year. For more local happenings, check out Top Secret Folder, The Millerton News, and Dutchess Tourism.
