I went with my 3 teen daughters to see what the museum had to offer. We had a delightful tour guide, Colette, who kept everyone actively engaged for almost 2 hours! She was a wealth of information, yet kept it fun for everyone. We tend to enjoy theses type of living history places, but she was truly remarkable! Everyone wants... More

A collection of farm houses, barns and out buildings, with animals, gardens and fields demonstrating farm life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Hallocks were the first to land on this part of Long Island, migrating from New Haven, CT and their descendants lived on the farm until almost the 21st century. Now it is a living... More

Head out to Hallockville for an interesting look back at Long Island History held in several antique buildings. The nearby cows are fun for kids to observe, the open fields are lovely to look at. Find a time when reenactors are camped out and the impact is fascinating. Tour the barn if you're into old farm tools and visit the... More

Went to a wedding here during the summer and the owner "herb" was crazy. We weren't allowed near the animals and he yelled at many other guests.

We went for the fall festival. Kids had a great time. Montser truck ride (which was $20 which I thought was wrong since we paid that to get in) They had tractor pulls, a craft fair, food, pony rides.....loved walking throught the old barn and seeing all the old stuff.

We had a great time, and came all the way out east to participate in a barn dance that I had seen advertised the previous weekend. My son had a blast running around, and dancing, and it was nice to do something different. Great place, very tidy, very nice people that work there. We'll be back again on our next... More

Should be called "Hick-ville" Farm. OK if you like cows and ancient steam tractors, otherwise quaint but pretty boring.
