From large institutions to small museums, we create transformative environments that educate and inspire, incorporating interactive displays, multimedia installations, and hands-on activities to engage visitors and enhance the learning experience.

In addition to the featured exhibits and collections, many of our museum designs include retail and food service spaces that are inspired by the museum’s mission and are informed by their environment and surroundings. We work closely with clients and expert consultants to create one-of-a-kind experiences based on data-driven decisions and increased opportunities for revenue generation, providing spaces for visitors to relax, socialize, and enjoy refreshments within the cultural complex.

Biographical Info

Science is all around us. It shapes who we are and what we do, from the clothes we wear and the phones we carry, to the food we eat and the water we drink. But science has a past—a rich and often surprising past that reveals the origins of ideas and innovations that impact our daily lives.

The Science History Institute collects, preserves, interprets, and shares that past by exploring lesser-known and sometimes overlooked stories from the history of science and technology. And we don’t just mean discoveries made in laboratories. We dive deep into the history of scientific successes and failures, with a focus on expanding knowledge and broadening our understanding of how science and society intersect.

PO Box 4 Otsego Cooperstown NY 13326 USA Work Phone: 607-547-2586 Website: The Cooperstown Graduate Program

Biographical Info

The Cooperstown Graduate Program is proud to be like no other. We train creative, entrepreneurial museum leaders committed to generating programs and services for the public good. Our students learn by doing tangible, useful work on real-world projects. They dedicate themselves to developing institutions that play a central role in their communities, encouraging broad public audiences to use artifacts and the study of science, art, and history as a catalyst for social change.

Students choose to focus on one of two tracks during their time at CGP: Science Museum Studies and History Museum Studies. Both tracks have a generalist curriculum, so students explore many aspects of museum work.

Our students benefit from small class sizes and a high faculty to student ratio. This allows students to get to know and work closely with professors, who are leaders and innovators in the field. Although CGP itself is a small program, as an academic division of SUNY College at Oneonta students also have access to the resources of a much larger state university.

We love to connect with prospective students, professionals in the field, alumni, or anyone interested in museum studies! Follow us on Twitter and check out our Facebook page.
