The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is probably one of the oldest buildings in NYC and one of its most historical sites on the island. The house admittedly is not kept up the way it should and is small but when you look on how old it...More

Thus treasure, a colonial farmhouse on its original site, is now a museum worth visiting. Set in Inwood near Fort Tryon at the upper tip of Manhattan island, it sits exactly as built and occupied! An amazing bit of cultural history for those who treasure...More

Our first stop in NYC. We prioritized the visit because it was closed over Easter weekend and we had ties to the house and wanted to ensure we go there. It is out of the way and we had a little trouble navigating the subway...More

Nice old house/museum in the otherwise highly developed neighborhood of Inwood. Learned about the Dyckman family and their way of life in what was then New Amsterdam. Entrance is free and an hour is enough to visit the site.

surrounded by high rise buildins, sitting nearly on top of Broadway is this incredible piece of history. It isn't the best maintained historic restoration I've ever seen, but it is OLD and still there! The grounds could use some tending, including identification of an out...More

Seems terribly unfair during regular business hours (1:15 pm - 1:40 pm) to hang a tag on the door saying employees will return in "just a few minutes"! A few minutes is 5-10 minutes! We would have loved to go inside this farmhouse but had...More

The house is an important piece of history. This is a self guided tour. There are signs outside each room to describe the room. These signs do not provide a lot of detailed information so I left wanting more information. This is not that far...More

Dyckman Farmhouse is easily accessible via subway or bus. We drove and found free street parking that was a 10 minute walk away. As the area is primarily residential, parking is not easy to come by- even metered/ paid parking. I'd recommend taking the train...More

The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a tiny, perfectly charming remnant of Mahattan's early history which has elsewhere disappeared. The farmhouse is (amazingly) sitting where it was built at the end of the 18th century and is the last farmhouse in Manhattan. The nominal donation of...More
