We have been going to shows at the Merry Go Round Theater, right across the street in Emerson Park, for years, and never paid attention to this museum. The sign is modest and the building doesn't look like there can be much inside–but we were...More

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.

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
