This museum is a must see for history lovers! Very few people seem to know about this place, since we didn't cross paths with anyone during the visit. It is a shame for the government not to be funding the museum's activities. We spent almost three hours wandering about the premises. The well documented exhibits featured the daily life of... More

Wow! What a great collection of historical agricultural museum. Even if agriculture isn't your thing, you will enjoy the village located behind the main barn. They have an incredible collection of historic buildings that were relocated to the museum. The buildings will take you back in time. There are a considerable number of wasps, so be careful.

This is a museum that you need to relax and take time to read the info on the equipment . We found it to be very interesting . We spent a couple of hours marveling on how they improved the equipment as farming advanced.

Wow! When I first passed by this museum all i thought was "its just a barn? it so small" well i can officially retract that statement! This museum was a very interesting experience with alot of different exhibits and the 1890s village gives a time travel trip to experience the lifestyle back in the 1800s. You will not be disappointed

A nice walk around both inside the building and outside of old agriculture vehicles and implements. Stop outside to see Lulu the pig. Nominal charge to visit.

The staff is very friendly, and the grounds are very child-friendly for exploration. Many of the exhibits have pieces that children are allowed to touch, and the live animals are friendly as well.

I'm a former teacher and we took our classes to the Ag Museum during "A Farmer's Spring." Knowing that our groups were coming the volunteers were quite accommodating and informative. The children got to see how things were "back in the day." The public is invited for this and they also have "A Farmer's Christmas." I do believe you can... More

Lots of interesting memorabilia and artifacts of farming past. Terrific for anyone who spent time on a farm in the fifties or sixties or even earlier; we were there. Good presentation for those who didn't to get a feeling for those times. Too cold for me to go outside, but I heard the village was well done too.

I had so much fun here. I originally thought this was a free museum, but it's not. The cost was low for us. It was $6 per adult. Not a bad price for all there is to see! There is a big, inside museum with all kinds of models, items from the past including tractors and mowers that were used... More
