What a little gem! They have one piece by Grandma Moses, too, although the entrance clerk had no idea that it was in his museum. The Native American exhibit and Ice Skating exhibits are wonderful. The grounds are beautiful. Don’t miss this gem!

Everytime I have wondered into Fenimore during visits to Cooperstown I have been fortunate to see something special.. Tiffany, Frida Kahlo and many more.

Good for a museum of its small size. The grounds are beautiful and very meticulous and right on the lake! Gorgeous view! The Dick Button was an excellent collection! Recommend for Spring, summer or fall!
