My two year old had fun, mostly riding the pedal tractor toys. It's small, has some cool information, but it's not worth the entry fee.

I happened to be going by so I stopped in. It is a nice museum, but it is more geared for kids. It is not a spectacular place. Just a museum.

My son loves the once a month parents' night out event. For $15 he has dinner, plays with all the exhibits and learns about something related to farming. Every session has a theme. We drop off at 6 and pick up at 9. It is...More

There isn't really much to do to be honest. We went and looked around for a bit, but paying to visit that place isn't worth the month. Frying Pan Farm is much better if you're looking for a fun farm atmosphere.
