The Finger Lakes Museum has been hard at work for over a year creating the incredible 11 Lakes Exhibit, in loving memory of founder, John Adamski. Sharing the cultural and natural history of the Finger Lakes region through stories, tidbits and photos, this walk-through exhibit will be displayed in our Creekside Center barn through October 21st.


The nature, innovation and history that make the Finger Lakes so unique is what inspired the creation of this travelling exhibit. The 72" tall structures are custom created out of steel and the Museum's downed ash trees, with colorful magnetic panels that tell the stories of each individual lake. The nine structures occupy over 1200 sq. ft. and are truly a sight to see. With an interactive voting panel, souvenir postcards and visitor-created string art display, individuals will be truly immersed in the experience.


It's time to share this lovely creation with our loyal supporters and we are eager to open the Creekside Center Barn doors to let in the sunshine, fresh air and visitors. This self-paced, self-guided exhibit will leave you learning something new, experiencing Finger Lakes stories in a unique way.


Visit the Creekside Center from 10am-2pm Monday through Friday beginning today Monday, September 26th through Friday, October 21st.


* Creekside Center will be closed on Monday, October 10th, in observance of Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples Day.
