Great stop for travelers for take a rest break. Turn of the century and the early 1900's farm. Great place to take school age children and persons who want to look at old times.

If you love history then you will like this place. To see how times has changed in Agriculture is amazing. What better place to have it then in the south. I never thought much about it before, but to see the here and now compared to way back...

Its a great way to get a glimpse of rural life in Georgia in the late 1800s. We loved the docents that talked about some of the exhibits.

Have seen it several times passing on I-75 and decided to stop and visit. Couldn't see everything in one day but the staff was very helpful with helping me getting my mother around to the different displays. The staff were very knowledgeable about the equipment and the history, I will definitely be back especially when they have their special events!

This is Georgia's official museum of agriculture, a living history museum set during the 1870 - 1899 focal period.
Better than any place in the country that I'm aware of, The Georgia Agrirama depicts the transition from pre-mechanized farming to modern day agricultural.
The working farm and village include mule farming with the necessary subsistence skills such as quilting, churning, canning, etc. The village is a complex system of cotton ginning, turpentine processing, saw milling, grist milling and the merchant support enterprises that were ubiquitous in the small farming communities of the late 19th century. There is a working steam tram which meanders through the site with visitors on board.
The Georgia Museum of Agriculture is maintained and operated by The University of Georgia's flagship agricultural institution, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. A stop-over to visit the Agrirama is well worth the time and meager cost and may well be a more memorable vacation experience than days at one of the "seen-one-seen-them-all" theme parks. No mouse suits here, just good hosts who well represent the neighborly hospitality of a bygone time.
