Take a walk through time and discover treasures from the past. The Chemung Valley History Museum strives to present history in unique and dynamic ways. At its museum, the Society offers resources on the history of the Chemung River Valley region through collections focusing on the Southern Tier of New York State and neighboring Northern Pennsylvania.

We "bring history alive" through interpretive exhibitions, education programs, and publications. The Society provides a setting for life-long learning. It's worth a visit!
