The Yager features permanent and changing exhibitions of fine art, archaeology and ethnography, with collections ranging from ancient artifacts of the Upper Susquehanna’s first human inhabitants to contemporary art. Among the collection’s strengths are North and South American ethnography, Renaissance art, American Impressionism and Andy Warhol. In addition to being a center for exploration of our artistic, archaeological, ethnographical, historical, and cultural heritage, the Museum serves as an experiential learning lab for Hartwick students and visitors alike.
We strongly advise that you check business websites or call ahead for the most up-to-date information on possible limited hours and whether reservations are necessary or not.
The Museum offices are open Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

Oneonta's quaint Main Street is filled with cafes and boutiques; just a short drive across the river, you'll find national retailers, more dining and family-fun activities.
