New York State's largest and most comprehensive living history museum

There's fun for every age at Genesee Country Village & Museum.

Founded in 1966 by John L. Wehle, Genesee Country Village & Museum was created to help preserve the vanishing rural architecture of the Genesee Valley, an area encompassing the Genesee River stretching from the Finger Lakes to the Niagara Frontier and Lake Erie. Today, this living history museum includes a 19th-century village, an art gallery, a nature center, and 600 acres of cultivated and wild land.

The Historic Village (which includes 68 structures originating from 11 counties in Western New York State) depicts how a small town in the region might have changed over time, providing insight into the origins of current customs, traditions, and social values. The John L. Wehle Gallery is home to one of the finest collections of sporting and wildlife art in America, and the Nature Center encompasses over five miles of themed trails, offering the chance to explore the natural world of the Genesee Valley.
