Photo3_GCVMMumford, N.Y. – Genesee Country Village & Museum opens for the 2023 regular season on Saturday, May 6, welcoming visitors to step into the rich history and natural environment of NY State’s Genesee Valley Region. The largest living history museum in New York, and third largest in the US, GCV&M encompasses over 600 acres and includes 68 buildings in the Historic Village, an extensive collection of sporting art and historic clothing in the John L. Wehle Gallery, and over five miles of trails and natural habitats at the Nature Center.

Visitors of all ages will find something of interest all year long – farm animals frolicking in the spring, heirloom gardens bursting into bloom in the summer, fall leaf-peeping and harvest, and winter ready-making. Visitors on opening weekend will also be the first to see a new multi-media exhibit in the John L. Wehle Gallery exploring how 19th-century Americans performed and navigated a changing landscape of gendered fashion. Becoming Gendered: Garment as Gender Artifact pulls at the thread of how dress provides the world with visual cues to interpret identity.

Historic fashion is complemented by historic imagery in the form of daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tin types, cabinet cards, carte de visite, and early 20th-century photography. GCV&M is open Wednesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. from May 6 through September 3, with reduced days of operation throughout September and October.
