The Museum was very nice, the grounds were out of this world.. the lake ..WOW.
We had a great visit in the museum, one of the ladies working there gave us a great tour ... I'm not a art museum guy most of the time but this place was fun.

We came to Cooperstown to go the Baseball Hall of Fame, and were delighted to discover this museum. Wonderful collection of Native American items as well as folk art by Grandma Moses, J.O.J. Frost and others. Beautiful grounds on Lake Otsego, with Native American exhibits on the grounds as well as inside the museum.

Enjoyed this museum recently day. It was lunch time when we arrived so we enjoyed lunch outdoors on the beautiful grounds before touring the museum. The museum was lovely with really nice artwork and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable.

I am particularly interested in Native American culture so truly enjoyed the exhibit available here that presented such items. The collection was varied and wonderfully displayed. Photos were permitted in this portion of the museum and hence a number of excellent additions were made to my albums.
