It is dedicated to preserving the historical, cultural and architectural heritage of the Genesee Valley Region. In the Historic Village, costumed interpreters demonstrate life, skills, crafts and trades that helped shape America.
The museum’s John L. Wehle Gallery exhibits a nationally renowned collection of hunting and sporting art of the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as the Susan W. Greene Collection of historic clothing.
The Nature Center includes 175 acres of wildlife preserve, a nature center building with instructional space and 5½ miles of interpreted hiking trails.
Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum
The Sodus Bay Historical Society operates a local history museum in the Sodus Bay Lighthouse, which was built in 1870. Visitors can climb the lighthouse tower, enjoy beautiful gardens, and shop for unique gifts.
The term street art means different things to different people. Here, we interpret street art to mean any outdoor, free, public wall art.
