Every Sunday in March!

Sugaring Off Sundays feature historic and contemporary maple-sugaring demonstrations, children's activities and more. A full pancake breakfast with real maple syrup is served from 8:30 am–1 pm with other activities scheduled 9 am–2 pm.
Taste hot maple syrup poured over snow, known as jack wax. To delight young and old, the Empire State Carousel will be open, a delight to ride and full of information about the people, places, and animals of New York State.
Walk through the museum’s historic village and talk with the master printer as he uses nineteenth-century type, cuts, and presses to create cards and posters.
At Lippitt Farmstead, admire the oxen-in-training, Red and Rusty, who have grown a lot since they joined the museum last March. Heritage breeds of ducks, chickens, turkeys, and sheep are a joy to watch, and visit our gentle horse and cow.
The Otsego County Maple Producers will be on hand to talk about maple sugaring and offer local maple products for sale.
