I like old agricultural stuff... so I enjoyed it. Immaculately kept museum with friendly staff. Not for everyone. We combined it with trip to Belle Meade.

My husband and I are both agricultural education high school teachers and corn/soybean farmers. We enjoyed visiting the ag museum. Very nice facility that allows people to look back into the past to see how things were operated. It would be nice to see more of the current way of things are but extremely nice facility, staff and information. It is free, too!

I liked the variety of activities that go on there. It's a very family-friendly place. Seeing the vegetable garden and the old farm implements is very educational. I have brought kids there for the Music and Molasses festival and they enjoyed it very much.
