Description

The Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum is the oldest structure in New York City and dates back to the time of New Amsterdam. The house was occupied by the Wyckoff Family from 1652 - 1901. It is due to the diligent efforts of the Wyckoff family that this monument of Colonial Brooklyn still stands, in its original spot, today.

Mission

The Museum’s mission is to educate visitors about the life and customs of the diverse peoples of Brooklyn’s Colonial farms.

History

The Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum is the oldest structure in New York City, with rooms dating back to 1652 (New Amsterdam). We interpret the agricultural history and diverse people of Brooklyn during colonial times and as part of Kings County from the 1800s through the 1940s. For over 250 years, the house was home to the Wyckoff family; today, the site is a property of the Department of Parks & Recreation, and the house is a museum. The museum features restored period rooms and an herb garden with seasonal plantings. The Museum offers daily tours and a year-round calendar of public events and workshops. The site offers tours, school programs, free public programs, and has volunteer and internship opportunities.

Educational Programs

The museum offers school programs, and teacher workshops Tuesday - Friday for a fee. Please check our website for our events.
