Welcome! The History Center is requiring that all visitors continue to wear masks inside the Tompkins Center for History & Culture. Our visitors include young audiences and others who are unable to be vaccinated. We appreciate your respect and awareness in following our Health & Safety Protocols.
The History Center collaborates with many organizations throughout Tompkins County each year on various events and programs.
We are excited to be able to offer our event spaces at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture to other local history and heritage organizations for their community use.
We're also proud members of many regional and statewide associations dedicated to education, historic preservation, and recognition of our statewide history.
