The Farmers’ Museum is now open for the 2019 season! This year boasts the same caliber of exhibitions and programming that you know and love along with some new surprises. Our special events return including, the 72nd Annual Junior Livestock Show, Hopsego, Harvest Festival, Thanksgiving at the Farm, Tractor Fest, Candlelight Evening and more. The Templeton Players, The Farmers’ Museum’s theatrical troupe is back with historical vignettes and a brand new show celebrating the 150th anniversary of our beloved Cardiff Giant! Come take a spin on “the museum you can ride on,” the Empire State Carousel, which has served as a destination for the young and young-at-heart since it first arrived on our campus. As always, our knowledgeable Interpreters are ready to give you demonstrations, provide hands-on activities, and host workshops focused on traditional crafts and trades.
We are excited to present a new exhibition in the Main Barn, opening May 11, 2019. Brew: New York’s Craft Beer Revival features objects, images, and text highlighting the history of brewing, hops and barley in New York State up to the present day.
2019 promises to be a very exciting year at The Farmers’ Museum and we look forward to seeing you here in Cooperstown!
