Attraction details
Owner description: Fun on the farm, that describes the Florida Agricultural Museum. Visit our 1890 Florida Cracker home complete with rare heritage livestock (Cracker Cows, Cracker Horses and the Florida piney woods rooter hog). Chickens, ducks and a tame turkey greet our visitors before they depart on a tractor ride tour of the museum's historic farm buildings. Guided horseback riding is available by reservation. Horseback ride along beautiful trails over our 400 acre property or ride your horse over Interstate 95 on the "horses only" bridge to an adjoining 3000 acres of riding trails. Camping with or without your horse is available. You can also visit the Hewitt's Sawmill Archaeological Site located on a heavily treed 3/4 mile hiking trail. Discover the site of a water powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813. We also rent Governor Caldwell's 5000 square foot diary barn for parties and wedding receptions. You can even get married lake side under a canopy trees. Everything at our museum is real. Not a plastic rock in the place. Come visit us and you will learn some Florida history and you might even carry home a free souvenir on your shoe. Your tour will last at lease an hour but the memories will last forever.

“Fun-filled & Educational Day at the FL Agriculture Museum.”
Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

The friendly staff and volunteers at the Florida Agriculture Museum treated us to a fun-filled and educational day. Both of my girls(ages 4 and 11) enjoyed the Farm Tour, Tractor Ride and of course meeting all of the farm animals. It was like stepping back in time as our knowledgable guide shared what life would have been like on a FL homestead. Take the time and visit!

“Hidden treasure.”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

We were on vacation and staying with Family and on the way to another outing one day we passed by the museum. We decided to go the next day. It was a lot of fun, my kids loved the animals. we really enjoyed hearing the history and visiting the out buildings on the property. It is a beautiful farm and I highly recommend stopping by for a visit.

“Not like most (stuffy) Museums”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

FAM is an example of a place where everyone can find fun. The tour is great! You can learn about the history of Florida in a fun environment. Kids won't even know they are at a museum! The tour takes you back to a time in Florida when everyone wasn't in such a hurry. Everyone should come and spend a relaxing day away for the hustle and bussel of modern life.
