Overview
More
Since completing a large expansion in 2014, our museum focuses on both the history of farming and the science and technology of modern agriculture. Want to learn about cotton? Exhibits take you from early hand harvesting to putting you behind the wheel of a modern cotton stripper in the Cotton Harvest Experience. You can also meet a hologram blacksmith in our shop, or talk to a farmer in the Bayer CropScience exhibit. Bring back memories as you walk through the antique tractors or swap stories with one of our volunteers. With a huge collection of antiques and machinery complimented by interactive kiosks with videos and games, there is something for everyone at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture. Plains Cotton Growers Conference Center available for rentals.

I really enjoy the display here of tractors and there is a lot of cotton info. There is an interactive experience as if you are sitting in a cotton gin.

We took a group of Brazilian cotton growers to visit this museum, that a large collection of old machinery used by former farmers in cotton production. The museum also has a collection of miniature machinery.
