Classes, Talks, & Experiences
You’ve never experienced anything like it!
Coopering, baking, making cheese, and flintknapping are just a few of the hands-on and immersive learning opportunities the Museum offers teens and adults. Most are single-day experiences, but multi-day classes and mini-apprenticeships are also available. Gift certificates for GCV&M classes and Living History Experiences also make wonderful gifts!
Step back into the past at in the beautiful Historic Village at Genesee Country Village & Museum, and experience what it was like to enjoy a family-style dinner or tavern dinner in an authentic stagecoach inn once located in the heart of the Genesee Country.
Our historical menus change seasonally, and selections are all based on historical receipts (recipes) from the 1800s or earlier. Plus, on select special event days throughout the season, guests can enjoy Tea or Coffee Houses in Historic Hosmer’s Inn.
Pioneer Weekend Experience
Spend an unforgettable weekend living at the Museum’s Pioneer Farm! What was life really like for a pioneer family settling in the Genesee Country during the early 1800s? Experience it for yourself! You’ll live the life of a pioneer family while Museum guests are around, but also in the solitude of a quiet summer night or on a cool autumn evening with the warm glow of firelight and candles illuminating your log home.
