This is an absolutely unique museum for the diversity of its exhibits and the architectural beauty of its setting. The tour was wonderfully curated and offered fascinating tidbits about history, art, architecture, and engineering. There is something for almost every interest. Don't miss this tour! We also learned about several events that the museum is host to that we would... More

Just across the river Chenango, from the Greyhound Line Bus Station where we got out of the bus upon our arrival in Binghampton, in Main Street is located this beautiful museum. There is a lot of fun here, interesting and educational things. We learned something about the Binghampton's local history in the Timeclock Exhibit. There is also a carriage house... More

What a great home. The woodwork and the architectural detail is amazing!! The stained glass windows are gorgeous, and the display of all the Time recorders through the years is pretty neat to see! Definitely check this museum out .

This is a place with a beautiful art gallery area on two floors. I have seen old and modern styles there and always learn something new about the history of this place. Highly recommend a tour for the full story.

This is a gem of a historic house, lovingly restored. What makes the experience even more delightful is the intimate nature of the visit: we had a guided tour by Eric, whose enthusiasm for the house, and its history, was the icing on the proverbial cake. The current owner has a huge collection of African art in the basement, in... More

I love the house at 129 Main Street. My dad owned it for many years, He ran a fine arts store and print shop from that location. As a child, I was fascinated by the "old" things in the house... the hand carved woodworking throughout, the beautiful stained glass windows, lovely fireplaces throughout, etc. I'm so grateful that the new...

For $7, the guided tour is well worth the money! The architecture, stained glass and woodwork are beautiful and learning about the Bundy time clocks as the precursor of IBM allowed us to walk away with a a large slice of local history. The museum also broadcasts its own radio station and they show movies from local producers in the... More

In 1957,... More

Neat old house with a connection to local business history. Funky and spooky. Friendly staff. Nice space for local artists to display. We will stop in again on First Fridays.
