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.
See below for driving directions starting from nearby cities, local highways, and area colleges. There is not a parking lot attached to The History Center, so you will need to park and walk to the main entrance. There are multiple parking lots less than a block from our location. You can find parking, other transportation options, and more information about visiting The History Center here.
**Please note some map GPS map systems or search engines may direct you to our old address at 401 E. State St, however we are now a few blocks down at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture at 110 North Tioga Street, Ithaca NY 14850.
