Smithsonian Institution Museum On Main Street In New York State

Nov 25, 2019

The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street program brings access to the Smithsonian for small-town America through museum exhibitions, research, educational resources, and programming.

In 2018, "Water/Ways" was the first-ever traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program to travel to New York State. This past summer, the Smithsonian announced its choice of the Hart Cluett Museum in Troy, New York as one of ten museums in the United States to be chosen for its Museum on Main Street “How We Work” pilot.

We are joined now by Director of the Hudson River Maritime Museum in Kingston, Lisa Cline; Director of the Chapman Historical Museum in Glens Falls, Tim Weidner; Director of Historic Rensselaer County at the Hart-Cluett Museum in Troy, Karin Krasevac-Lenz; and Director of the Museum Association of New York Erika Sanger.
