The Time And the Valleys Museum in the Catskills is unlike most other museums as it strives to provide an un-museum-like experience to the visitor. The museum recreates different elements of 1930s culture and brings them to life, making one feel almost entirely immersed in the surroundings.
Typically, museums show a person what has been and what is gone. But the Time and Valleys Museum believes that to understand the past, one must live it. Conceptualized in 2003, the museum was founded by entrepreneurs who spent many months researching and educating themselves on what they had to do to establish an entirely fresh and new concept. About a year later, they received not-for-profit status from the IRS, resulting in the Time and Valleys Museum coming to life – quite literally!
Their mission is to draw light on the heritage and history of the Rondout-Neversink Watersheds, of which they are very proud, and make a constant and dynamic effort to keep adding to the understanding and interpretations. By design, it is an interactive experience that revives the past, draws attention to the present, and displays the uniqueness for generations to come. Time and the Valleys Museum
