A Message from the Director of Development:

Hello All,

We tried some new things this year.  We opened a new exhibit exploring the history of protest, we expanded our film programming through a collaborative Film Trail, and we hosted our first Hands-On History Camp. We are working to ensure that the educational resources we provide are open and engaging for all visitors; truly embracing that Auburn and Cayuga County have a rich, diverse trove of historical and cultural wealth to enthrall anyone who wishes to visit.

Earlier in the year, the Cayuga Museum engaged in a strategic planning process, wherein community members were asked to provide their input on the Museum’s impact. Much of the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. One commenter said, “The emphasis on local history is important as it makes me appreciative of CNY’s diversity and contributions to the overall history of NY State and beyond.”

It is clear, however, that there are still improvements that need to be made. Your contribution provides a foundation for the services we already provide for the community, and cements the possibility that we will be able to improve and expand our accessibility to the public. Thank you for your generous support!

Geoff Starks

Director of Development and Outreach
