'Core Sample' exhibition

The new museum was built with a gift from Dr. Marlin Miller, Jr., chairman emeritus and member of the Alfred University Board of Trustees since 1972, and his wife Ginger. It is the first permanent home for the museum, which has its roots in the first “study collection” created in 1903 by Charles Fergus Binns, founding director of what was then the New York State School of Clayworking at Alfred University.

Beginning Nov. 1, the hours of operation for the Museum, located on Pine Street on the AU campus, will be:

Wednesdays: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Fridays: 10 a.m.-5 5 p.m.

Saturdays: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Alfred University and Alfred State College faculty, staff and students will be admitted free with ID, as will Alfred-Almond Central School students.
