Cayuga Museum Re-Opening in March for Its 85th Year 

The staff at the Cayuga Museum have announced that they will be opening their doors to the public again on Wednesday, March 3!

The Museum will still be operating under  pandemic restrictions, with a reservation only system to better control capacity. The museum’s capacity is a maximum of 20 people at one time.

Staff have also announced new operating hours, with the Museum open from Wednesday-Saturday from 11AM-4PM (beginning March 3rd), with tours of the Case Research Lab now being held on the hour at 11, 12, 1, and 2.

The Museum will also add new admission  levels: $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and military personnel, $5 for students with valid IDs, and free entry for children 12 and under and all Museum members.

To make a reservation and review  the details of their new visitation policies, staff recommend reviewing their webpage at 

The re-opening announcement also includes some details on what visitors can expect to view this year, with the Cayuga Museum entering its 85th year of operation (the longest running museum in Auburn). 

In recognition of this milestone, staff designed, “… a huge exhibit schedule that is simply called The  Memory Project. Throughout the year, you will see rotating exhibits exploring the history, art, science,  impact, process and so much more regarding how we remember.” 

In March, Part 1 of the Memory Project, titled Processing the Past, where you will share historical images  of Cayuga County, with visitors challenged to ask themselves, “How does this photo shape the way I  think about this moment?”
