Thank you for being a member of the Cayuga Museum of History and Art.

In 2021, we are celebrating the Cayuga Museum’s 85th birthday! Join us in our celebration by joining the membership during May, which is Teacher Appreciation Month at the Cayuga Museum. Throughout this month, educators (current or retired) will receive $10 discounts on any level of membership at the Museum, and we will be celebrating teachers and the interesting stories about the current and historical educators who have helped build Cayuga County! 

Thank you to all the hardworking educators who had to adapt your entire lives to meet the challenges of the past year. We know that education is at the heart of our community, and that you likely will never be thanked enough for the ingenuity and sacrifices you have made to make sure our children can not only face the future, but thrive in it. Because we can never say it enough, thank you for everything that you do.
