The museum staff is here ready
to help you!
We are closed to the public but are still hard at work in the museum; cataloging collections, performing inventory, updating the archival index, researching new gifts, and planning for the future.
We are also continually updating our website, Facebook, and Instagram. We're creating a new webpage on Potsdam in 1865 that involves a map called Pin Point Potsdam!
We get requests, gifts and donations. Thank you to all of those who have been so generous at this time!

Call us at 315-265-6910 with questions or comments;
