  • While I generally agree with the bulk of the reviews that this is a great museum, I think the admission fee is a little high for what you get.

  • Terrific museum with so much to see. From the core collections of native American art and artifacts to the special exhibits of art of Venice to drawings and sketches by the Wyeths to pen and ink...

  • This is a beautiful art museum to visit. I've been many times in the summer but this was my first visit for the holidays. The exquisite architecture is enhanced by many tasteful holiday displays. If you have the opportunity, I strongly recommend a visit to the Fenimore to get into the holiday spirit.
  • This is a very cool smaller museum. Each portion is well considered, and the staff is quite nice. The artwork associated with James Fenimore Cooper is almost the cherry on top of the overall experience.
