The Gouverneur Museum
30 Church Street, Gouverneur, NY 13642
The Gouverneur Museum has artifacts on three floors, an exhibit building outside, an Annex at the Gouverneur and St. Lawrence County Fairgrounds, and an authentic one room schoolhouse.
The museum's collection was built from local donations and every object speaks to us from the past and links us to the real people who once owned it. Thanks to the generosity of area residents, the Museum houses thousands of items, many are quite unique.
The Museum website features many of these items, along with a bit of Gouverneur history. Admission is free and the main building is open on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 3:00 PM and on Saturday by appointment with the Curator, Joe Laurenza (315) 323-2654.
You can explore the exhibit rooms with an online tour, voiced by the Gouverneur Historical Association board members. Or you can browse the various rooms online and learn more about some of the more unique items there.
