Facts & Figures

TFM Visitation

Considering that COVID-19 delayed our opening until July, and guidelines limited our ability to have many of our traditional member and special events, we had a remarkable season. We had  10,952 individuals visit The Farmers’ Museum throughout the 2020 season and 1,877 visitors under the age of 7. We welcomed 1,717 members to The Farm. Our programs brought in 1,234 attendees, and our special events brought in 1,061 visitors. Total visitation for the 2020 season was 16,841 people.
