The quilt exhibit was very moving, with numerous historical quilts on display as well as recently crafted quilts. Loved exploring the ceramic wares, carved wood, and other things created by local artisans.

Don't plan to just rush in and take a peek. Take the time to really look at the lovely objects and displays. Items range from local handcrafted candles and lotions to stunning beadwork and jewelry, as well as practical and beautiful home goods.

As an ethnomusicologist (and therefore partial folklorist), TAUNY is a FANTASTIC place for me! And as someone who very much wants to see local artisans, musicians, etc, supported as much as possible to help the actual people in the local economy, I LOVE this place!...More

The "museum" has been newly renovated with displays of both Amish and "english" wares. We especially liked the different buggys and quilts that were shown. There was furniture made by local craftspeople and the new front desk is a beautiful example of North Country work....More
