  • Visited an afternoon during the week prior to Christmas and had the museum almost to myself. Some exhibits are permanent, and others for a limited time. Really enjoyed history of figure skating and Le...  more »
  • We saw a few other exhibits, and got a nice docent tour, but really this place is (perhaps) unparalleled for the collection of Native American art and artifacts. Piece after piece is stunning.  more »
  • This museum is in Cooperstown which is really not on the way to anywhere. You really just want to come here. I exited the thruway at Canajoharie and have to say -that part of my trip, continued down t...  more »

  • Great museum! Well worth a visit if you're in town. A good collection of Native and American art, plus folk art. Special exhibits as noted. I didn't try the cafe, but the prices for sandwiches were reasonable. They didn't try to gouge you like a majority of museums will on food. Prices at the gift shop were high compared to regular stores, but most museum gift shops aren't cheap to begin with.
  • Great museum with strong and eclectic collections. Beautiful scenic vista. Just a great place.
  • A hidden gem of Upstate New York, traditional art exhibits as well as rotating contemporary art work. The building and grounds are beautifully maintained.
  • Great varied displays-- something for everyone. Honestly interesting and thought-provoking with a spacious atmosphere. Plentiful parking. Lunch available. Beautiful gift store.
  • Outstanding. Dick Button ice skating exhibit an unexpected treasure and Andrew Wyeth pictures great. The house itself is gorgeous and a piece of history. Then sit on a bench and watch the river go by.
