The Museum continues to practice "social distancing" as long as it is necessary. We also ask our visitors to wear a good quality mask. We regret having to insist on this, but many of our visitors are high risk for the disease.

Our displays have been updated for the coming quarter. Drop in, the next time you're in Oneonta. We'll be happy to see you and perhaps help with a bit of your family history.
