Fun day of wandering through history and visiting baby animals. Educational for the whole family. Costumed interpreters enhance the experience. Veterans discount was appreciated!

We took the kids here and they had a blast! Very family friendly and interesting enough to keep both of our kids entertained! Our kids are 12 and 4

Even on weekdays several of the buildings here have costumed interpreters actually making things. In one shop traditional bandboxes are covered with historically inspired papers (and available for purchase in the gift shop), at the farmhouse meat is roasting in the fireplace, pies are cooking...More

It was a rainy day on our visit to Cooperstown and since we'd already seen baseball hall of fame twice we figured we'd give the museum a try. What a great idea. It was interesting, informative and afforded plenty of attractions for the kids. It's...More

Reminds us of Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. This is a fun place for all ages with much to see and learn.

Very interesting place. From the school house to the animals to the farmer tools. I would not recommend going first thing in the morning during the week/summer. Lots of younger kids from day camps visiting.

What a fun little visit. I think this would appeal to all ages of kids. Hands on things to do, it was very laid back and enjoyable. Would totally recommend spending a few hours here.

If I didn't come from a family of farmers, I might not have been as interested in visiting this museum. With that said, I believe it's well worth the $16 admission (per adult) where not only can you tour a museum of relics, once you...More

The grounds are basically smooth dirt with small gravel. Completely walkable. The museum doesn't cover a whole lot of area so there are no means of transportation provided. There are places where you can sit and rest.
