The Farmers’ Museum invites you to look deeper into all our nooks and crannies, whisper into the ox’s ear as he plows a perfect furrow, peel away layers of wallpaper in the More house restoration project, get a first hand look at the engineering required to install the Empire State Carousel or lend your voice to the important dialogues about history and agriculture and art and craft - the legacy of New York culture. Join with others who are fascinated by New York State history and who have made the museum a great gathering place for the preservation of this public service.
