Enter at the corner of the building - at the Potsdam Emergency Services entrance. Turn right after you enter and go past the restrooms and vending machines up the first flight of stairs (there is an elevator to the right of these stairs, if needed). At the top of the first landing go straight into the Civic Center office area, at the front of building turn into the hallway left and enter the Museum. There is only 15 minute parking on the street in front of the building.
