Men in heavy aprons hammer iron inside smoky wooden stores, and women in bonnets mingle in front of inns and churches. An octagonal house's shingled roof and windowed cupola soak up the sun as they've done since the 1870s. Genesee Country Village & Museum and its historical interpreters immerse visitors in the daily life of a 19th-century village. Interpreters may discuss the lives of their characters or participate in up to a dozen live demonstrations of old-fashioned trades such as pottery throwing and blacksmithing. They travel among more than 68 historical buildings such as farmsteads, a brewery, a printing office, and a one-room schoolhouse. In the kitchens of many of these buildings, staffers cook historical meals suited to each building's time and its owner's socioeconomic status; visitors can sample the food during tastings and hands-on classes.

The village’s newly renovated Wehle Gallery encompasses four centuries of wildlife and sporting art by American artists. An old carriage and oil paintings share space with early sculpture castings and pieces from the Taos art colony. Other rooms contain interpretive exhibits on 19th-century life, such as a Lincoln Log room filled with craft activities. Inside other buildings, adults and children can take part in indoor classes in textiles, cooking, and foreign languages; outside, a network of nature trails leads visitors through natural fields, woodlands, and wetlands.

In 1872, Susan B. Anthony performed a courageous act. She voted, determined to prove that the 14th and 15th Amendments gave women the legal right to vote. The immediate result wasn't encouraging, though—a US marshal arrested her in her parlor, and then a federal judge fined her $100. But despite the resistance, Anthony's volition continued to inspire the suffrage movement, not to mention the abolitionist movement and the fight for equal educational opportunities for women.

More than a century later, the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House educates visitors on her life—from the many relationships that impacted her thinking, such as her friendship with slave-turned-abolitionist Frederick Douglass, to her acts of civil disobedience, such as refusing to pay the $100 fine for voting. The home, where Anthony lived from 1866 to 1906 in what were arguably her most politically active years, has undergone extensive restoration to look as it did when Anthony lived there. This ongoing effort has breathed new life into everything from the third-floor workspace, to the house’s foundation, to Anthony’s basement kickboxing gym. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the home welcomes guests for both self-guided visits and tours with tea and lunch.

The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum gives visitors a view of the inner workings of a company whose products became part of the American amusement landscape throughout much of the twentieth century. A network of seven different interconnected structures, the museum occupies the production facilities of the Allan Herschell Company, the carrousel cartel credited with thawing icy relations between humans and horses. Examine exhibits such as the Lockman Collection, an assemblage of 20 different hand-carved creatures that illustrates the stylistic evolution of carrousel animals, and the Wurlitzer Music Roll Shop, showcasing manufacturing equipment and more than 1,600 hand-punched music rolls designed to coax wooden beasts from their lumber slumber. Admission to the museum includes a complimentary ride on one of two on-site carrousels: a 1940s-era aluminum ride equipped with miniature mounts for kids only, and a carrousel sporting 36 adult-sized steeds that dates to 1916, the year it was discovered that horses aren't poisonous.
