The mission of the Cayuga Museum of History and Art is to provide a forum for the public to realize, interact with and appreciate Cayuga County’s shared past and unfolding present to help shape a better future. The Museum maintains multiple collections, including a large Haudenosaunee collection. In 2012, we returned 21 objects of spiritual significance to the custody of the Onondaga Nation. Nineteen masks and two wampum articles associated with burials were transferred from the Museum collection to the Onondaga Nation.
