If you feel the barn door has shut on ever finding a new travel attraction for your next vacation, we heartily recommend visiting The Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., as a remedy to your trip planning challenge.
educational and entertaining
living outdoor museum
wonderfully depicts our rural American heritage through some through
authentic demonstrations and interpretative exhibits. While most
popular in the summer (the patriotic July 4th event is always
memorable), The Farmers' Museum is also an exceptional place
to visit during the foliage-rich fall, the spring (for maple sugar
runoff), and, of
course, during the holiday season for its truly special December
Candlelight Evening. The Candlelight Evening (2011 date to be
announced) offers a fabulous traditional holiday celebration with
of luminaries and caroling, mule-drawn wagon rides, winter games,
Santa telling stories in the old schoolhouse, and delicious
wassail around the warm campfires throughout the historic village.
Coming here, one realizes really what a traditional Christmas
is really all about. And it's, quite simply, a beautiful scene.
As Santa once said to us after the
warmest greeting, "This is something out of Currier and Ives."
We could ride the carousel all day. I don't think we've seen a better carousel and we've been to quite a few. I can't remember ever seeing a carousel with this level of detail and craftsmanship.
remember, the Carousel is just part of the overall rich experience of
The Farmers' Museum. This is certainly no stuffy display of history. We
We absolutely love the Farmers' Museum! It's surely part of the Cooperstown matrix that we have come to fall in love with as the Museum reflects the authenticity, purity, natural beauty and wholesome fun of the region.
This is one travel destination we make sure to visit during our Cooperstown vacations. We heartily recommend putting The Farmers' Museum on your "A' list when planning your Cooperstown vacation.
