This place has a lot of older equipment and displays showing how Agriculture was accomplished in the old days. If you enjoy museums and agriculture, you will love it. It is also a very fine place for meetings and get togethers with lots of room.

It recognizes the region‘s agricultural heritage and displays a large collection of the machinery that was a part of the technological transformation that took place on the South Plains of Texas farms. The tractors, combines, plows, drills, and thousands of other farm-related... More

Had not been here in some time and how it has grown. Huge buildings and hillside grounds contain all kinds of interactive exhibits and historical displays going back to pioneer days. Actual equipment and tractors are everwhere. A unique exhibit had over 70 pedal tractors and literally hundreds and hundreds of collectible toy tractors!

I grew up on a farm and seeing the antique farm equipment brought back old memories. This was a very nice facility and the curator was very friendly and informative.

The correct street address for this museum is 1121 Canyon Lake Drive. My brand new GPS sent me about 4 blocks away, where it was previously located. Go to this address and you will find it. The museum has a huge collection of tractors of all brands. It also has kids pedal tractor and model tractor collections. There's a display... More

If you would like to learn more about how that cotton you love in your jeans and shirt got there, this museum needs to be at the top of your to-see list. Priceless contrast across 100 years of cotton ginning machinery from original wooden models to the latest stainless steel and touch screen versions, all accomplishing the same thing, just... More

Within 1/2m. of the Wind Power Museum in Lubbock is this, another gem of a museum. We only visited because of its' proximity to the aforementioned wind power museum, not being 'of the land' people but boy, are we glad we did! We had put Lubbock on the itinerary for our touring holiday primarily to pay tribute to Buddy Holly... More

If you are interested in your heritage in American Agriculture, do not miss this museum. It is across the road from the Windpower Museum. The exhibits are excellently restored. There is a wonderful cotton display as well as a blacksmith shop and a tool shop. The entrance fee is only $5.00 and well worth it. They have dedicated docents to... More
