Museum’s Open House
Catt. Co. Path Through History Museum Crawl
See how many museums you can visit in one day as our local museums open their doors for the Path Through History Weekend in NYS. Visit the Museums of Cattaraugus County for New York State’s Path Through History Weekend on June 17th from 10am -4pm. New York State encourages its residents and visitors to explore our History this Saturday, June 17-18 of 2017.
Many of the museums in Cattaraugus County will be open on June 17th and offer historical photos, festivals, unique displays or genealogy research for you to discover. This year, if you visit any of the Museums throughout the weekend, you will receive a FREE gift for stopping by (while supplies last). In most of the museums, there will be a special photo area and props set up for you to take your photo with to share with all your friends what a historically fun time you had.
We know you will enjoy learning some of the stories of our rich history, including parts of the Underground Railroad, fortunes found, ever-changing transportation, war heroes, folklore and so much more!
Each participating museum is listed below so you can plan a weekend of diving into the history of our towns, villages and cities! Times are 10am – 4pm, unless listed next to the Museum below.
