Museum Village’s Opening Day and Farm Tools Grand Re-opening

  |   April 11, 2012  |  Comment

Museum Village has set April 14 for the grand re-opening of the Farm Tools Building. This exhibit, which has been closed, has been redesigned and updated thanks to a grant from the New York State Council of the Arts.

“Farming is certainly an important piece of our history and economy in Orange County”, stated Michael Sosler, General Manger of Museum Village. “That makes this exhibit a very significant part of the museum. Cynthia Zippo, along with the whole team at the museum, volunteers and staff, has done a great job with this new exhibit showcasing our farm history.”

The museum will have a little ceremony and ribbon cutting at 12:00N. Some refreshments will be served.

April 14 also marks the opening day of the museum. In addition to the New Farm Tools display, there will be some other updated exhibits as well. The Natural History Building has some new showcases – make sure you stop in and see our mastodon – and as a result of our new partnership with the Orange County Farmers’ Museum, their Farmer’s Wife Exhibit will be newly on display.

“The museum is looking forward to a great first day of the season,” added Sosler. “And we will have many more new surprises for our visitors during the year!”

Museum Village is a living history museum preserving a vast collection of eclectic, 19th century artifacts for educational purposes. Using these artifacts and reproductions, we provide hands-on experiences and exhibits illustrating the transition from a rural to an industrial culture and economy in America, provoking thought and discussion about history. www.museumvillage.org.
