The Parrish museum was an interesting example of modern art but having visited MOMA in Manhattan a few days earlier maybe we were spoilt and too high expectations. It was serene and interesting to wander through but only to fill in a hour or so.

Take the 45-60 minutes to come to this amazing museum. Up there with the MOMA, DIA Beacon, Tate Modern and the Getty. You will not be sorry! The building is gorgeous and the collection is beautifully curated. The Highlight of our Hamptons weekend!
