“Great source of information on local history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

They have wonderful exhibits that change regularly and their permanent collection tells some very interesting tales about the little big city of Ithaca. If you are looking for history, this is the place.

“The little museum that can”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

I've been here for several recent exhibits (two on quilts alone!) as well as a public reflection on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The History Center works to show the relevance of local and national history to current residents and visitors. It doesn't have a huge budget, but its exhibits are insightful and well done. It has a gift shop with local books and Ithaca Cats (if you don't know what they are, you need to find out!). It's worth a visit.
