Recommended for all ages, this annual self-guided visit is our most
popular offering. Spring Field Days gives teachers and students the
opportunity to spend time with the exhibits, demonstrations, and
interpretive areas that matter most to them.

Trips to the Museums
in May and June have been a tradition for students for many years, and
Spring Field Days has become our most popular program. Classes explore
The Farmers’ Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, and our Native American Sites
on self-guided tours at their own pace.
Spring Field Days now features Museum Quest,
a series of staffed drop-in learning stations at both museums to help
students explore our collections through standards-based activities in
math, science, social studies, and language arts. Plus, all of the
learning stations are now connected to the new Common Core Standards in
English Language Arts!

Offered: May, June
Cost: $6 per student (includes admission to The Farmers’ Museum and the Fenimore Art Museum)
New York State Standards: SS, Arts, ELA Common Core, MST
