Opportunities

The Cayuga Museum of History and Art engages the community to appreciate local history, promotes the arts, and educates individuals about the invention of sound on film through the operation of the Museum, Case Research Laboratory, and Carriage House Theater. In this team-based environment, you will work closely with staff, volunteers, and community members to explore the many ways we can tell the extraordinary stories found in Cayuga County’s history, art, and science. Join our team of creative thinkers!

The Cayuga Museum is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce, maintaining a workplace free of discrimination based on race, gender identity, faith, sexuality, age, or disability. We strive to reflect the diversity of the community we serve, and will always work to examine and dismantle the structural barriers that have historically excluded many communities from this place and the museum field as a whole.

Proof of Covid-19 vaccination is required for employment and volunteer consideration. Reasonable requests for accommodation will be made in accordance with Federal and New York State Law.
