Cooperstown, New York, Part 3, The Farmer's Museum

Charles HammellComment

I love living history museums! I was eager to explore the Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, NY, and I was very pleased with the entire experience. I love to learn about early life in America. The docents at the Farmer's Museum were excellent. I spent 1/2 hour watching the rope maker. Audience participation was encouraged. I could have watched and listened all day,but, there was so many more buildings to visit. Here is a sampling of the village.

Impressive double silo entry

Barn and gardens

Street scene

Merry go round!

Black smith shop

Rope making demonstration

Wall paper exhibit

Fragrant herbs

Children of all ages will enjoy this museum. Lots of things to try, animals to pet, places to run, educational toys to buy, and crafts and books for folks like me. Tickets for adults are $12.00, 7-12 year olds-$6.00, children under 6 admitted for free.
