Spring 2021 Yager Museum Update

During Spring Term 2021, the Hartwick College campus remains closed to the public, due to the continuing challenge posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Unfortunately, this means that the Museum continues to be closed and in-person public programs are cancelled until further notice.

The Museum will be open to members of the Hartwick community on the following schedule:

  • Wednesdays: 12 Noon-4 p.m.
  • Thursdays: 12 Noon to 8 p.m.
  • Fridays: 12 Noon to 4 p.m.
  • Saturdays: 12 Noon to 4 p.m.

This schedule will be in effect beginning Wednesday, February 17 through Thursday, May 27, 2021.  We will also be open to Hartwick community members by appointment at other times. 

We will continue to share the Museum’s exhibits and collections virtually via social media and this webpage.  

In our new series, The Yager Through Your Eyes, Hartwick students, faculty and staff take you behind the scenes to discover their favorite objects from the Museum collections.  These videos will be featured on our Facebook page or you can access them on the Museum’s YouTube page.

We miss you and look forward to welcoming you back to the Yager as soon as we are able.  Please follow the link below to stay up-to-date on the College’s status.  Please follow the Museum’s Facebook page (@yagermuseum) to enjoy highlights and stories from the Yager’s collections!

Reopening Our Campus Updates

The Yager Museum of Art & Culture presents compelling exhibits throughout the academic year, and is open to the public.

What’s more, the Museum functions as a hands-on learning environment where Hartwick students integrate academic knowledge with practical skills through Museum Studies courses to create exhibitions and programs for the public.

Our Mission:
The Yager Museum of Art & Culture, a center for exploration of our artistic, archaeological, ethnographical, historical materials and culture heritage, serves as an experiential learning lab that engages students in the museum’s efforts in collecting, preserving, researching and interpreting collections according to the highest standards of professional practice.

Our Vision:
Through engaging exhibitions and programs that capture the imagination of students and the public, the Museum facilitates contemplation and discussion of objects and ideas from the past to spark creativity, insight, and inspiration about diverse cultures, including realities from the past and prospects for the future.
