Question of the Day: Tackapausha Museum

The museum may face the budget ax. How do you feel about this?

County Executive Ed Mangano has announced that museums may be closed for budgetary reasons.

Among those potentially on the chopping block is the Tackapausha Museum on the border between Massapequa and Seaford.

Have you ever been to the museum? Are you upset by the decision or do you believe the decision was necessary in the current economic climate?

Please answer in the comment section below.

reminds me of them closing the Staten Island Homeport. Build or renovate (spend money), then close it...

This is ridiculous. They are just finishing the renovations! This is the only place of this kind in the area, they should close something else. PATHETIC!

This museum and the preserve are wonderful places to visit and important to keep open. And they are run by someone who really cares about them, putting a lot of personal time into group activities at the museum and watching over the vandalism in the preserve. It would be a huge shame to close the museum since so much money was just spent there. Of course it hasn't been a revenue generating operation - It's been closed for over a year! Let it open and stay open!
