Imagine turning the latch, opening the door and stepping over the threshold into another century. At The Farmers' Museum, every visit is a new adventure, determined by the path you choose - through the gallery in the museum's glorious Main Barn, where you can marvel over the history of ice cream from the Egyptians to American suburbia in the new exhibit, Ice Cream: Our Cool Obsession.

Cross the Creamery Green where The Empire State Carousel swirls joyously, past the Country Fair. You may linger among the authentic architecture of the 1840s village, examine a rare find in one of many historic gardens, or hurry on to milk the cow at the Lippitt Farmstead. Around every corner are opportunities to reconnect with a richly colorful and ingenious rural culture that can still surprise and enchant more than 150 years later.
