Experience The Farmers' Museum during the most haunting time of the year. Join museum guides as they lead you about the shadowy grounds and recount the many mysteries and ghostly happenings that have occurred in the Museum’s historic village.

• Walk through the darkened 19th-century village by lantern, stopping at the Blacksmith’s Shop, Bump Tavern, and other buildings.

• Hear stories associated with the museum’s buildings, such as the tale of a young ghost sighted by staff and guests in Bump Tavern and the mysterious early morning strikes on the blacksmith’s anvil. Some of the ghostly tales are adapted from the Louis C. Jones classic, Things That Go Bump in the Night, a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State.

• During each tour, be prepared to hold your breath as Michael Henrici brings Edgar Allan Poe’s classic “The Tell-Tale Heart” to life.

Reservations are required. Recommended for ages 10 and up as this tour may be too intense for small children. Younger children should take the earliest tour if possible. Groups will be smaller this season to accommodate for social distancing. Small groups of eight per tour or a single, larger family unit may reserve one of our limited time slots. If your family group numbers more than eight, please call John Ferguson at (607) 547-1534 for booking guidance. Face masks are required. For general questions regarding the program, please call (607) 547-1534.
