Step Back in Time to 1845 at the Farmers' Museum

Experience what life was like for New England farmers and villagers in the middle of the 19th century at this interactive living history experience. Costumed character actors bring the working farmstead and recreated village to life with craft demonstrations and interpretive exhibits. Ride the historical carousel or hop on a horse-drawn buggy. Tour a Colonial Revival stone barn and see heritage livestock in the petting zoo. Visit more than a dozen historic buildings, including a smokehouse and blacksmith shop. See the one-of-a-kind Cardiff Giant statue and explore a vast collection of genuine artifacts from one of Brooklyn's oldest farming families.
