The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a visual treat for everyone who looks up and sees it perched above Broadway at 204th Street. The Dutch Colonial style farmhouse was built on this site by William Dyckman c. 1784 and was originally part of several hundred acres of farmland owned by the family. in 1915, family descendants purchased the farmhouse, restored it and donated it to the city. It has been open to the public since 1916.Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

How wonderful finding such history in upper Manhattan. The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a great place for children and adults. Hands on apple cider pressing. So cool!! The personnel were friendly, helpful. Wow, the army bunker was so interesting. Hey there Teo Turtle! You helped keep the kids further occupied. And thanks for the books My grandsons thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks. I'll be back!
It’s amazing that such a thing existed and I had no idea about it till today lol I’ve been past this house many times before and had no clue this museum was so close to home..it’s nothing fancy, but it takes you back to a time when this part of Manhattan was nothing but flat lands, and your neighbors are few in between! Oh but watch out for the low headway..always smacked myself on the low ceilings a few times and I’m not even that tall!
