EXPLORE THE MUSEUM ACTIVITY CRATES
Add adventure and fun to your museum visit by reserving one of our Explore the Museum Activity Crates! Filled with puzzles, books, crafting projects, coloring pages, and scavenger hunts for the museum.
Activity Crates can be checked out for $5 when scheduling your visit. Kids may take home all work sheets and coloring pages, but other supplies and games must be returned to the front desk at the end of your visit.
HEALTH & SAFETY: Following each use crates and activities will be quarantined for 3 days before going through a full sanitation process. Thanks to grant funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, we were able to purchase multiple sets of activities in each crate, allowing us to rotate them while maintaining necessary health and safety standards.
We understand that visiting public spaces during COVID-19 has presented a new set of challenges and considerations, and we at The History Center and all the organizations at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture want to ensure that your visit is as safe and secure as possible. To that end we have instituted new safety, sanitation, and security measures throughout the building.
Health & Safety Protocols
We are all very excited to welcome you back to the museum, and these measures have been instituted for the safety of the public, and the staff and volunteers of The History Center in Tompkins County. Review our full list of Health & Safety Protocols.
If you have any reflections or suggestions on how we could improve our practices for your comfort please contact Ben Sandberg at email@example.com.
