Description

Three (3) floors of interactive exhibits inside the museum. Explore outside and find yourself stepping back in time at our "1930s Lost Catskill Farm" with time-period buildings and a working waterwheel.

The Time and the Valleys Museum is a living and interactive resource that preserves the past, educates the present and ensures the uniqueness of the Rondout and Neversink watersheds for all generations.

In 2018, the 1930's Lost Catskill Farm opened with a house, barn, woodworking shop, blacksmith shop and other farm outbuildings. Created to illustrate life on a family farm before being removed to build NYC’s reservoirs, it is interpreted using the most advanced technology, including tours for mobile devices.

Mission

Connecting water, people, and the Catskills. The museum’s long range plan is to create a “Museum Without Walls”, to be both indoor, outdoor and virtual, enthusiastically bringing history and the environment to others, wherever they may be.
