I was having a medical procedure done at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and I wanted a place that my mother could stay to be near me. JC (the owner) was awesome! She was so caring and took real pride in her place. Clean rooms, thoughtfully stocked, and quiet! This place is a gem!

In September 2009 for one week. I needed a place to stay to attend an educational program at the Harold Freeman Institute and could not have found a more perfect situatuion. My room was spacious, quiet and George and JC made sure my needs were met for breakfast, organic veggie from California. I will definitely recommend the Museum B and B to others.

What an amazing discovery to stumble upon this historic inn! I searched high and low for a comfortable hotel in the Bronx area, only to discover none existed. but only 7 miles away, we were lucky to stay at this delightful, artistic getaway. Innkeepers were unbelievably accommodating!

Located in upper Manhattan, right near Yankee Stadium in a beautiful residential neighborhood, the home is beautiful, the room is warm and welcoming, as were the proprietors. This was our 2nd time there in 3 months!

Nice owner. Great location--near subway. Really cool, clean, spacious room. More for your money than regular hotel stay. Healthy breakfasts. Heater was an issue though. Recommend staying.
