COVID-19 Yager Museum Update

Hartwick College continues to respond to the spread of COVID-19. Following the College’s Spring Break, all Hartwick classes have continued via remote instruction only. 

Effective March 20 at 5 p.m., all campus-based activities were suspended until further notice. Unfortunately, this means that the Museum continues to be closed and public programs are cancelled until further notice.

We understand this news may be disappointing. 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!

College COVID-19 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.
