The Farmers’ Museum is devoted to preserving America’s rural heritage through interactive exhibits, living history programs, and educational workshops that depict farming and rural life. We have designed programming that will support your curriculum and help students make real world connections to their learning.

We offer a variety of School Programs including our popular tours, workshops, and Museum Quest program. Our travel grants can help your school access The Farmers’ Museum.

We also have an active Distance Learning Program that can bring the museum’s resources to classrooms all over the world. And we offer professional development opportunities for educators through The New York State Historical Association's annual October Conference for Teachers.
