New Museum

We’re Busy Setting Up The New Museum

We have moved to a new location inside the Town of Sidney Offices at 44 Grand Street, and we are currently getting the museum setup and ready for the public at the new location. We will be having an Open House on December 1, 2018, and plan to completely open to the public on a regular schedule beginning January 2019. Please stay tuned to the site for specific dates and updates.
