Since completing a large expansion in 2014, our museum focuses on both the history of farming and the science and technology of modern agriculture. Want to learn about cotton? Exhibits take you from early hand harvesting to putting you behind the wheel of a modern cotton stripper in the Cotton Harvest Experience. You can also meet a hologram blacksmith in our shop, or talk to a farmer in the Bayer CropScience exhibit. Bring back memories as you walk through the antique tractors or swap stories with one of our volunteers. With a huge collection of antiques and machinery complimented by interactive kiosks with videos and games, there is something for everyone at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture.

Plains Cotton Growers Conference Center available for rentals.

This place has really grown since Bayer has put up $$$. Great state of the art exhibits and a welcoming staff to answer any questions. Definitely worth taking visitors to see.

We took a group of Brazilian cotton growers to visit this museum, that a large collection of old machinery used by former farmers in cotton production. The museum also has a collection of miniature machinery.

What a fantastic attraction to the county and city. If you haven't been here, you need to go. Take your parents , kids, or grandkids. Encourage your schools to take a field-trip. Spacious, educational, historical, tools, tractors, machinery, artifacts, stories to learn and tell and so much more. Takes a few hours to see it all. It has been carefully... More

What a great display of agriculture! Beautifully restored tractors, cotton ginning equipment, a cotton stripper simulator, a blacksmith shop, etc. We loved the pedal tractor and toy tractor displays! A great piece of heartland history!

This is an in formative look at agriculture from the past through today. When we were there some of the exhibits weren't working. Overall it was a great experience. I really appreciated the old farm equipment. Reminded me of my grandfather's operation.

A thrilling visit for those of us who are deeply... More

This museum has several interactive displays, which I enjoyed. I also jumped in a drove a computer simulated cotton harvester. There are displays on various crops, as well as blacksmithing. There is also a huge collection of old farm tractors, many still in mint condition. Worth a visit if you are interested in agriculture.
