Housed in a beautiful brownstone on the Upper West Side, the museum shares the artwork and peaceful philosophy of Russian-born artist Nicholas Roerich. He believed you could attain peace by sharing culture and his stunning paintings bring you into a spiritual world unlike any other in Manhattan. Its an oasis in NYC. (August 2012)

The mansion on West 107th Street just off Riverside Drive is a quiet place full of the amazing art work of Nicolas Roerich. It is a beautiful place to contemplate the art and to meditate. The paintings are mostly of a spiritual nature and include scenes of Tibet. The Museum also has lovely classical concerts from time to time. You might forget that you are in Manhattan.
