Hart Cluett Museum Opens Doors to the Public with New Admissions Policy Smithsonian Exhibit Offers Timely Exploration of Work

TROY, NY – August 30, 2021 – The Hart Cluett Museum announced a new admissions policy that is intended to improve access to its collaborative Smithsonian exhibition, The Way We Work(ed).  Adapted from an original exhibition developed by the National Archives, The Way We Work(ed) explores how work became such a central element in American culture by tracing the many changes that affected the workforce and work environments in Rensselaer County over the past 225 years. 

“Admission fees are an important source of income to help fund the cost of operating the museum, but we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to see the exhibition and to explore the larger context of the current changes that we are experiencing in the workplace.” said Starlyn D’Angelo,  Executive Director of the Hart Cluett Museum. “This exhibition is something that our community can point to with pride, and everyone should see it before it closes.” 

Pay What you Wish admission allows visitors to pay an amount within their means to enter the museum. The recommended admission is $10-15 per adult but any amount will be accepted. Children aged 17 and under will not be asked to pay admission. 

The museum is open Thursday through Friday from noon to 5pm. Gallery tours and talks will be available throughout the fall and during the evening on the first Thursday of the month. Details are available on the museum website at
