Come celebrate our public re-opening with two brand new exhibits, and enjoy free admission for First Friday!
*New Exhibit 1) “Proof Positive: Wine, Beer, and Spirits of Cayuga County”, will explore the history of how wine, beer, cider and spirits are made in Cayuga County. Visitors to the exhibit will explore the history, the process, and the impact of the alcoholic beverage industry, while enjoying a free tasting from Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing Company!
*New Exhibit 2) “Auburn in Harriet Tubman’s Time” explores how Auburn changed in the 54 years during which Harriet Tubman called the city her home. Through historic photographs, visitors will learn about the growth of Auburn from 1859 to 1913, and get a glimpse of specific places tied to Harriet.
You can come visit us for our opening from 5-8 PM on Friday, March 4. Admission will be free during this time, and Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing Company will begin tastings around 5 PM.
