High Falls museum reopens

The High Falls Center and Interpretive Museum is now open under an operating partnership with the Rochester Public Library and Office of the City Historian.

The museum, located at 74-78 Brown’s Race, had been operated by the city since October 1992. The city, however, ended a contract for operations in June and transferred oversight to the library and historian’s office in July.

Public tours of the center will now be available. The collaboration will continue as the city expands Heritage Area programming and tours beyond the High Falls location, incorporating the Downtown Heritage Trail, Erie Canal and Genesee River historic sites.

The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m.
