We visited here on a weekend and had the place to ourselves. It was fun to see some variety of tractors and tools many of which were invented in SD. Was hoping for some more hands-on exhibits. Good quick stop on campus.

We have been there for special nights when the museum hosts specialty guest speakers. One was all about Bees. We took our daughter and we all learned something. There is... More

I don't think you need to be a farmer to find this place interesting. It's not mind blowing, but a cool look into the past.

If restored farm machinery is your thing, this place can't be beat. The restorations are amazing. There are exhibits of farm life from the past and a very helpful staff that will answer any questions you might have. It's not a big museum but it is a fine one!
