  • I took my daughter here for a temporary geology exhibit that was at the museum a few years back. We ended up tour the entire museum and I was really impressed with the local connections to various historical events. Such as the local connection to World War II, the museum had four different rifles from the Pacific theater all with the Japanese Emperor's seal on them. It was a great source to learn about settlement in early upstate New York.
  • An eclectic mixture of local history. Joe gave us a very informative tour of the many rooms filled with Gouverneur treasures.
