Visit our 1890 Florida Cracker home complete with rare heritage livestock (Cracker Cows, Cracker Horses and the Florida piney woods rooter hog). Chickens, ducks and a tame turkey greet our visitors before they depart on a tractor ride tour of the museum's historic farm buildings. Guided horseback riding is available by reservation. Horseback ride along beautiful trails over our 400 acre property or ride your horse over Interstate 95 on the "horses only" bridge to an adjoining 3000 acres of riding trails. Camping with or without your horse is available. You can also visit the Hewitt's Sawmill Archaeological Site located on a heavily treed 3/4 mile hiking trail. Discover the site of a water powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813. We also rent Governor Caldwell's 5000 square foot diary barn for parties and wedding receptions. You can even get married lake side under a canopy trees. Everything at our museum is real. Not a plastic rock in the place. Come visit us and you will learn some Florida history and you might even carry home a free souvenir on your shoe. Your tour will last at lease an hour but the memories will last forever. « less

I love historical sites and this one was really neat. Part of the tour is self-guided and part is a ride through. There were many historical buildings and things to look at. Very interesting stuff! The guide was very knowledgeable and told us lots about everything there. I loved the old farmhouses and the general store. Be sure to look... More

i took my grandson for his first horseback ride, Jack was our guide, he was great,the trail ride was awesome and my grandson was hooked on horseback riding. This is a great spot for a trail ride, the horses are beautiful and well taken care of. Ask for Jack when you make your reservation you will be glad you did.

The Florida Agricultural Museum in Flagler County, Florida is a living history to the farming pioneers who braved the elements, wildlife, insects, disease and ravages of war and discontent, the Great Depression to prosper in the Florida Territory and later State. Drop back in time and experience what early day inhabitants would endure each day. The tour and events are... More

We have passed this museum often on our travels down Old Kings Road headed to Rt 95. One hot day in July we decided to make this our destination. We were not disappointed. This farm type museum is full of interesting things. There are several old buildings which have quite a history to them. After touring some barns and older... More

Really, how does Agriculture and Museum come together? Not well. We have been her a few time. Twice for events going on and once to just check it out. Events were ok. Venders were soso with always trying to sell something. We gave it a good try, but we won't be taking company here.

This museum has gone down considerably since I first went there. The animals are great, but their enclosures are old and filthy. That really makes the whole experience kind of sad. It would be so nice if they would tear down the animal enclosures, rabbits and chickens, build new ones that are clean and fresh looking. The store leaves much... More

We joined the museum last month under the Ma & Pa category. Living in central Florida and working in this area since 1962 and interested in Florida History I finally stopped here to visit. Stopped by on Wednesday afternoon and we were lucky to encounter our Historical Interpreter Robert Garver. It was obvious that he was totally involved with the... More
