A Small, Engaging Art Museum in a Picturesque Town

Tips for Families

Before you go, visit the website to find a specific exhibit that truly interests you. If traveling with small children, be aware that not all bathrooms are equipped with changing stations. The one bathroom we visited upstairs was quite tiny and cramped - think narrow vintage stalls - and was not conducive to occupying together with a toddler. The staff might be able to direct you to a more appropriate bathroom. Also check out the Farmers' Museum (same street) and the National Baseball Hall of Fame. If you are looking for a real treat in the Fall, make the short drive to the Fly Creek Cider Mill, which will wow you with more free samples of sauces, salsas, snacks, and treats than you've ever seen in one place! The kids can also watch the cider press and learn how cider is made.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly accommodations

The Otesaga Resort Hotel provides luxury accommodations and is very close to both The Fenimore and The Farmers' Museum.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly restaurants

The cafe at Ommegang Brewery is worth checking out if you have older children. There is communal seating, the adults get to sample the local microbrews, and the menu is creative but kid-friendly (Belgian fries, crepes). Even if you're not going for a tour, the exterior of the brewery is a pretty impressive sight. At the time of this review, the women's bathroom in the cafe was not equipped with a changing station.
