A Message from the Museum Leadership:

Hello All,

2019 has been an extraordinary year of transition for the Cayuga Museum of History and Art. With completely new leadership taking the helm, we have renewed our efforts in providing thought-provoking exhibits, innovative programming, and expanding outreach.

Our work is already paying off! In an evaluation where surveyors were asked to describe the value of the Museum, one responded, “It is an important part of the community because it is a reminder of the past, a comment on the present, and a picture of what the future could be.” It is a thrill to hear such glowing assessments, and we hope that you have been affected similarly.

We have introduced the interactive Power of Protest exhibit, a Hands-On History camp for young, historically fascinated minds, and successfully bid New York state for funding to unify our grounds with that of the Schweinfurth Art Center  to create an accessible hub: the West End Arts Campus. This has been a great year of change for the Museum, and none of it would be possible with out your enthusiastic support.

Thank you for your generosity, and we hope you are looking forward to all our exciting exhibits and programs in 2020!
