This museum will fool you because it looks small from the outside. Once you are inside it is surprising just how much information and how many exhibits are on the premises. It was enjoyable and woulld appreciate a little more info than what was available.

It doesn't look very big from the front, but this museum houses an incredible display of things showcasing Cayuga County's rich agricultural heritage. One room looks like an old general store; one, an old kitchen; another, a 1-room school house. And that's just the front...More

My wife and I were fascinated by the collection of equipment, tools, machinery, photographs and records of Central New York agriculture in the 19th and early 20th century. The displays are easily viewed and nicely done. The setting in a barn-like building is very appropriate,...More
