  • 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.
  • A great immersion into American history and art of the region. My family and I will definitely plan to visit this museum again!
  • A wonderful and thoughtfully laid out museum with interesting exhibits that were not advertised. The photos of jazz legends was incredible.
  • Went to Otesaga hotel with the boyfriend and got a package that included tickets to the Fenimore. We really enjoyed the different exhibitions (one item was from year 12!) and scenic outdoor views.
