Candlelight Evening Parking and Info:

What to wear: Most activities are outdoors, so please dress in layers and wear winter boots. Several of our historic buildings will be heated, as well as the main barn. And you can always warm up with a hot cup of wassail near the bonfire!

Parking: A free shuttle service starts Saturday at 2:30 pm, serving the parking lots at the Otesaga Hotel, Cooperstown Elementary School, and the three trolley lots at the perimeter of the village - see map below. The "Yellow" Lot, just north of the museum, will have its own dedicated bus.

When you arrive: Please follow signs to find your correct entry point. Cash and credit will be accepted through the museum's main entrance. Members, online ticket holders, and pre-paid ticket holders will enter through a side door - to the left of the main entrance. (If you want to become a member, please use the members' entrance.)
