Tackapausha Museum and Preserve

The Tackapausha Museum offers a window into the varied natural habitats of Long Island, including plants and wildlife in different seasons. A popular exhibit features live animals in a reversed day-night cycle; the museum also provides educational programs and birthday parties.
The Tackapausha Preserve is an 84-acre tract of glacial outwash plain that serves as a wildlife sanctuary, consisting of wet, deciduous woods, swamps, streams and ponds. A variety of small mammals and 170 species of birds have been seen at the preserve in the spring.


NEWS BRIEF: Tackapausha Museum closed on August 16, 2010, for renovations and is scheduled to reopen in Fall 2011. For more information, please call the museum.
