Fenimore Art Museum

Visit the Fenimore Art Museum

Located on the western shore of Otsego Lake, housed in an elegant 1930’s neo-Georgian mansion, the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, NY presents a perspective on the heritage and history of America through art. The beauty of the museum setting is matched by the quality of the collections it houses, including some of the nation’s finest examples of American landscape, history and genre paintings, American folk art, photography, and American Indian art. The museum café is the perfect spot for a light lunch. The dining area is situated on the museum’s terrace and is surrounded by beautiful plantings and a panoramic view of Otsego Lake.

As an added bonus we are excited to offer a discounted membership for the Fenimore Art Museum and Farmers’ Museum.

Choose the perfect room at The Inn at Cooperstown and experience one of the most enthralling art museums in America.
