Genesee Country Village & Museum

Album Description: History comes alive at the largest and most comprehensive living history museum in New York State. Genesee Country Village & Museum invites your whole family to step back in time with costumed interpreters to explore the 19th-century Historic Village. Furnished with more than 15,000 artifacts, the village includes 68 structures originating from 11 counties in Western New York. The buildings depict how a small town in the region might have changed over time, providing insight into the origins of current customs, traditions and social values. Visitors can tour the working brewery, the blacksmith, potter, printshop, tinsmith and visit the baby animals on the farm. GCV&M is also home to the John L. Wehle Art Gallery, the Genesee Country Nature Center and Silver Baseball Park. Open seasonally with special events all year long. Just 20 miles from Rochester and 45 miles from Buffalo.
