Frequently Asked Questions:

Will I get overwhelmed with too many "updates" and "tweets"?
Definitely not! The New York State Museum generally posts only one entry per day. On the rare occasion, an additional entry for special events or schedule changes may be made.

I "liked" you on Facebook, but I am not getting an update everyday. Why not?
With each daily update, Facebook only publishes to a small, random percentage of individual news feeds. That means some days you may receive updates, and others you will not. If you would like to receive ALL updates without having to visit our Facebook page on a daily basis, here's how:

  1. Find our heading in your news feed and hover our our name. A small window will open with "Liked" and "Message" buttons in the bottom right.
  2. Hover over the "Liked" button. Another small window opens.
  3. Click to add a checkmark next to "Get Notifications"
  4. Sit back and let the daily updates roll in!
