Fenimore Art Museum

The Fenimore Art Museum, on the site of author James Fenimore Cooper’s early 19th century farm- house in Cooperstown, houses the impressive collections of the New York State Historical Association, with fabulous examples of fine art— including Hudson River School canvases, and folk art just full of imagination. The museum’s Thaw Collection—one of the nation’s leading exhibits of American Indian art and artifacts— amply demons- trates the aesthetic power of American Indian art through the beauty and artistry of more than 800 objects.
