Visit | Shopping & Dining


The Fenimore Museum Shop located on the main level of the Museum includes special merchandise and elegant jewelry from regional artists, Native American works of art, books and gifts related to fine art, folk art and the history of New York State. Visit our online store.

And if that is not enough we invite you to walk across the street to the newly redesigned Farmers’ Museum Store and Todd’s General Store. The Museum Store and Todd’s General Store offer unique handmade crafts created right there at The Farmers’ Museum as well as even more products based on the history and culture of New York and America.

 Open during regular museum hours.



The Fenimore Café is the perfect spot to enjoy a light lunch, a glass of wine, or locally brewed beer. Try our delicious homestyle soups, fresh made sandwiches, wraps and desserts.  Choose from a wide selection of hot and cold beverages.

The dining area is situated on the museums terrace and is surrounded by beautiful plantings and a panoramic view of Otsego Lake. It is an experience not to be missed.

Indoor seating is also available.
