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 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.

This truly state-of-the-art museum has interactive displays that intend to teach the world about what happens between planting and harvesting a myriad of crops. Built in the heart of one of the largest cotton-producing areas of the world, the museum has garnered support from all areas of the agriculture industry. 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.

This is a great place to experience the challenge of American agriculture. It's a look at the past as well as the present, and how it developed. The museum has a holographic blacksmith, old plows, a large collection of toy tractors, a very extensive collection of real tractors, an air tractor (spray plane), and a simulation cotton harvester. There a... More

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!
