The History Center’s Youth Education Department is committed to making history “real” and meaningful by underscoring how past events shape present realities.
While the focus of our programs is the history of Tompkins County, we strive to tie local developments to the nation’s history.
To this end, our programs are student-centered, use primary sources and original artifacts where appropriate, and seek to strengthen the general public’s knowledge of the issues which define our times, as well as fostering an appreciation for the past.
When visiting our Exhibit Hall ask at the front desk for museum activities for youth ages 4-18 (and fun for adults too!). We have Exhibit Hall Scavenger Hunts, coloring pages, and Heritage Lab activities available for all visitors.
Our programs and exhibits are open to youth of all abilities. If you have a child with sensory sensitivities or physical needs please contact us for program specific details and accessibility options.
