A nice place to visit.

There isn't so much to do in Cooperstown and this is one of the main things. It is really done well and the whole family can enjoy the visit. It is educational and interesting.

We stopped here because we were in town for a Glimmerglass production and didn't know what else to do during the day since we aren't baseball fans. I confess my expectations were looooooow, but was I ever surprised. I had quite a good time there exploring the many "living" exhibits, and chatting away with the interpreters who stayed in character... More

She and I then drove the short distance to this Museum. There were lots to see and a variety of equipment and antiques. Plus there were real... More

Ended up here because we ran out of other things to do. We really enjoyed it! It's a step back in time and interactive. I didn't think it would keep our boys 10 & 8 engaged but they liked it.

This "museum" is an actual working village of the 1800's. It is an eye-appealing attraction and an educational experience rolled into one. The museum staff are friendly and well-informed. The museum itself is worth seeing and what you learn from the staff brings the village to life. There is ample parking, restroom accommodations throughout, a snack bar and a great... More

An entire operating village from a bygone era. From the start you are immersed in the period. Learn type setting in the printer's store, or candle making next door or watch the blacksmith fire up the coals to shape a horseshoe. You can see the live stock and walk through their barn. The chickens are out and about. For the... More

Beautiful buildings, pastoral setting, friendly staff, interesting exhibits of live animals, crocks, old tools and farm equipment. Carousel something to behold, lovely! Worth seeing. Now closed for the season until spring.

I went to Farmers' museum and find it interesting. This is a place where time winds back and can relax. You can visit Fenimore art museum and Farmers' museum together at a discounted fee too.

This is a great place for adults and children to relax and enjoy a nice Fall Day. You can bring your lunch or snacks and relax with the kids or grankids. The town is nicely done and very realistic. You can spend the day so don't rush.
