“Unsophisticated museum”

New England Maple Museum
Ranked #1 of 6 things to do in Pittsford
Attraction details
Reviewed August 15, 2012

The New England Maple Museum depicts the history of making maple syrup and has many examples of the tools and equipment used to collect and refine the sap. The museum is interesting, but unsophisticated - inexpensive and worth a visit if you're in the area.

The museum tour is very informative and entertaining, and you get to try samples at the end. However, if you are buying maple syrup, you can get the same stuff at the Walmart for $3-5 cheaper.

I must confess that i have been here many times. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable. We just go for the syrup and i never have done the museum. The best part is that they allow you to sample some of the items in the back before you buy them. And they answer all of your questions about the syrup. They have a large amounts of different items to purchase, not just syrup. And yes they have maple syrup/jams for people with high sugar. I have 4 bottles of syrup and it is good, no not the real thing but close enough! The sugar free jams are to die for!

The New England Museum is nothing but a country store with a gallery of instruments used throught the course of history to make maple syrup in the area. At the end of the gallery you will watch a video on the subject and get the chance to taste some samples of syrup that is sold in the store. There is an admission fee of $2.50 for adults and 75 cents for kids. The store keeper seemed rather unwelcoming to us so our overall experience was not good and we ended buying our maple syrup in another country store in town which I believe is called Kamuda's. Prices at Kamuda's were really good and the store owners were nice and friendly.
I personally think that it is more interesting and educational go to visit one of the many farms who make maple syrup if you want to understand and even witness the process. I later found out that most farms in the area offer guided tours in their maple woods and sugar houses during sugaring season.

What a great place to visit for a history lesson on Maple Syrup. Great variety of gifts, nice staff. Purchased a half gallon (Grade B) for my Dad!
