The Cayuga Museum campus operates in three buildings: the mansion, the Case Research Laboratory, and the carriage house. The mansion is home to several changing exhibits each year as well as a permanent exhibit about Auburn Correctional Facility. The Case Research Laboratory is the home of talking movies, where Theodore Case invented the first commercially successful system of sound on film, which visitors can now explore on a guided tour to learn about the history of sound film. The carriage house is a recently renovated multi-purpose space used for museum and community events.

Our mission is to provide a forum for the public to realize, interact with and appreciate Cayuga County’s shared past and unfolding present to help shape a better future.

  • Great little facility for a band or show. They offer drinks and it's great to support local business and keep the history of Auburn alive. My only comment is that some shows like those where the performers may be on the floor and such if you are sitting further than the first couple rows you won't be able to see due to how it is set up. If the stage were set a little higher it would be perfect.
  • I love this place for many reason. I loved that my family was able to be apart of the Families from Italy focus. They are also amazing with the community and children . Right in The main road. Easy parking and an interesting stop!
