Enjoy our special holiday programs!

Even though the Museum closes during the winter (November 1–March 31), we always reopen on certain days for special seasonal programs. In December, join us for our Holiday Lantern Tours. Our Museum Store is also open for your holiday shopping! (Open daily 11am–4pm through Dec 24.)

Hops and Brewing

Hops and brewing programs run throughout the season at The Farmers’ Museum. Discover the area’s rich hops history, why Cooperstown used to be nicknamed Hop City and the secrets to creating an amazing craft brew.

With ongoing special events, tastings, demonstrations, tours and more, the museum is sure to be hoppin’ no matter when you visit.

We raised $14,015 on #GivingTuesday! Thank you!!!
