COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (06/05/2014) — In honor of Father’s Day, all fathers receive free admission to the Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum on Sunday, June 15.
Start the day at the Fenimore Art Museum by taking in one of its many new exhibitions, such as The Adirondack World of Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait. Tait’s pictures of Adirondack wildlife, sportsmen, and rural community life resonated with 19th-century Americans seeking respite from the fast pace of urban living.
Cross the street to The Farmers’ Museum, where the blacksmith and printer demonstrate their skills and explain their role in 19th-century life. The Pickup Truck: America's Driving Force exhibition takes dad through the fascinating story of the pickup truck, an icon of respected American values and virtues: honest, hard working, durable, and reliable.
Also on Father’s Day, see our baby farm animals and ride on the Empire State Carousel.
It’s the museums’ way of saying “Happy Father’s Day.”
Other than fathers, admission is free for members of the New York State Historical Association, active military, and retired career military personnel. Admission is $12.00 for adults, $10.50 seniors, and free for children 12 and under.
