Overview
More
Encompassing more than 600 acres, the Genesee Country Village & Museum is one of the largest living history museums in the country. Located in small hamlet of Mumford, New York, about 20 miles (32 km) from Rochester, New York, USA. First opened to the public in 1976, the authentic 19th-century Historic Village features costumed historians breathing life into many of the 68 relocated and restored historic homes, farms, shops and other public buildings. When you visit during the regular season you will find various historic trades and craftspeople as well as historic cooking and agricultural demonstrations. GCV&M is also home to the John L. Wehle Art Gallery, the Genesee Country Nature Center, Silver Baseball Park, and several Heirloom Gardens. Numerous special events and classes are also offered throughout the year. Our regular open season runs from Mother's Day weekend through Columbus Day, with special programs in November, December and March.

A great representation of life in early New York state. Very well run with many demonstrations, etc. The layout is well planned and organized. Everyone associated with the village was friendly and personable. Well worth the price of admission.

All the homes and buildings from the colonial period thru the Victorian age are awesome. Beautifully restored with many original furnishings. The docents are extremely good with knowledge of the past and demonstrating period crafts. Lots of farm animals for the kids.

This living history museum is one of the best in the country! If you are passing through, it is a must-see. If you live locally, why haven't you visited? It is a gem that is not to be missed.

The village is a great place to find out about what life was like in the 19th century. Amazingly informed docents, who care about the buildings and want you to care also are amazing. Be sure to visit the octagon house!

I am not sure what link you mean, but if you need a lift while visiting GCV&M and the trolley is not running, you need only ask a staff person and they will call someone to assist you.
