One of the special features of the museum is its extensive programming. On most Sundays from September to June, the museum is open to the public and offers presentations on a wide variety of topics, many geared towards children. A unique feature is the open hearth cooking performed in the museum’s Frazee Building during the spring and fall. Members of the Cooking Committee demonstrate the skills used in 18th century open-hearth cooking, using authentic recipes, utensils, and foods appropriate to the era and season. Samples may be offered for visitors to try. The cooks of the Miller-Cory House Museum have been featured in the New York Times and other national magazines.
