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 early American icons. See it! I lived nearby and visited often...

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 to find the farmhouse. We got there in time to see a hand come out... More

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 building, but sit on the back porch and you can almost forget that Broadway is... More

Provides fascinating look into life during colonial New York and revolutionary war period. Owned continuously by Dyckman family until early 1900's. Has many historic photos of upper Manhattan also. Used as hessian encampment during war, their huts are restored in backyard. Bring your lunch and picnic in backyard or sit on back porch. There are regularly scheduled concerts and theatre... 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 to satisfy ourselves with a visit around the grounds, including the Hessian hut in the... 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 from The Cloisters museum so that may be an additional stop while you are in...

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 as you're also within waking distance of Fort Tryon and the Cloisters and can make... 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 $1 per person allows you to explore at your own pace a Dutch farmhouse which... More

Having travelled up the A Line to visit The Cloisters, we were checking on TripAdvisor for other nearby attractions and discovered the Dyckman. The museum provides a fascinating look backwards to an earlier, and simpler, era. Well presented, with a wealth of detail and reminders of a life style now gone. After a visit to The Cloisters, and walk down... More
