I loved this place! I went to Cooperstown for the baseball HOF and left a fanatic about this place. Kids and adults will love it. A beautiful, huge "farm and town" as it was many years past. Horses, cows, chickens, goats, turkeys, etc etc. I...More

We love living museums such as this place. Buildings date from the 1800's and lots of interactive things explained by costumed interpreters. It was the perfect time to see the baby farm animals!

An added bonus as admission was part of a package ticket with the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. History, artifacts, live animals and hands on exhibits all make this attraction a place to visit with or without kids.

So many great exhibits. Living history at its best. Great exhibits both indoors and outside. Carousel is a great feature. Wished we had much more time here. 2-3 hours is nowhere near enough time.

The beauty is in the reenactments which are well done and give you a real feel for farm life back in the day.

What an interesting place to visit. All the buildings and people in them have a great story to tell. Loved listening to each one. The Merry-go-round is breathtaking. Place is wonderful for children and adults too. Highly recommend!

The good: there is a refurbished carousel which is beautiful (although I don't think it's necessary to charge $1 admission per person in addition to museum admission.) We were fortunate to visit a day after 2 baby lambs (less than a day old) were born...More

We visited the Farmer's Museum on a beautiful spring day with our daughter and grand daughter. It was a Monday and we had the place virtually to ourselves. This allowed our two year old grand daughter the ability to run and explore freely as we...More
