New Exhibition at The Farmers’ Museum Offers A Youthful Perspective On The Animals of New York State

Press Release Contact: 

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - On Memorial Day weekend, The Farmers' Museum will debut a new exhibition that will give fascinating insight into some of the animals that call the Empire State their home. Wild Times!  A New York Animal Road Trip opens May 23, 2009 in the Main Barn.

Inspired by the Empire State Carousel at The Farmers' Museum, Wild Times!  A New York Animal Road Trip showcases some of the animals on the Carousel, and explores their natural history, mythology, social history, art history and use in pop culture. 
 Join fictional characters Lulu and Max as they travel across the state in search of the animals that make New York their home.  Learn amazing facts about each throughout their journey.


The exhibition follows the geography of New York State, from Long Island to Western New York. The Long Island section includes the bay scallop and Peking duck, which formed the basis of important downstate industries. The New York City area addresses how gray squirrels and raccoons have adapted to thrive in a people-created environment. The Catskills’ brook trout and black bears represent the balance of nature and tourism. The Central Leatherstocking area features horses and their use in farming and racing, as well as Holstein cows and the thriving agricultural industries of the region. The Adirondacks highlight the beaver and loon and address nature-tourism. Finally, Western New York considers the mule, which is the representative animal of the New York canal system.

The exhibition will run through October 31, 2009 and will reopen in 2010, on April 1, for the entire season.

On Memorial Day Weekend, The Farmers’ Museum will be open 10 am to 5 pm both Saturday and Sunday.

Also opening on May 23, 2009 will be America's Rome: Artists in the Eternal City, 1800 - 1900 at the Fenimore Art Museum - across the street from The Farmers' Museum.

Evening at the Tavern

Press Release Contact: 

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.—Escape to the 1800s with The Farmers’ Museum’s popular program, Evening at the Tavern, and delight in music and merriment topped off with an authentic period dinner. Evening at the Tavern will be offered on Saturday, March 28, and April 18 from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Guests will enjoy an evening dining experience featuring a four-course candlelit meal, period music and games, and old-fashioned hospitality in the museum’s historic Bump Tavern.

During the evening, guests will be offered a tour of the historic tavern with the museum’s interpretative hosts, learning about the history of taverns and travel in the 19th century.

Bump Tavern was built by Jehiel Tuttle in the late 1790s in the village of Ashland, Greene County, New York. Strategically located on the Catskill and Windham Turnpike, the resting spot served cattle drovers and other travelers passing through the area. The tavern was purchased in 1842 by Ephraim Bump, who expanded the building and updated the Federal period architecture with Greek revival porches. In 1952, Bump Tavern was moved to Cooperstown, where it became part of the collection of historic buildings at The Farmers’ Museum.

Space is limited; reservations are required and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Full payment is required in advance by check or credit card.
