Event Description

Hour-long tours begin at 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00 pm

Experience The Farmers' Museum during the most haunting time of the year. Join museum guides as they lead you about the shadowy grounds and recount the many mysteries and ghostly happenings that have occurred in the Museum's historic village.

Walk through the darkened 19th-century village by lantern, stopping at the Blacksmith's Shop, Bump Tavern, and other buildings. Guides tell ghostly tales adapted from the Louis C. Jones classic, "Things That Go Bump in the Night," a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State. You will hear stories associated with the museum's buildings, such as the tale of a young ghost sighted by staff and guests in Bump Tavern and the mysterious early morning strikes on the blacksmith's anvil.

Reservations are required. Admission is $10 per person (ages 3 and up). Please call (607) 547-1461.
