Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

The museum is just starting out in this location. It has a very nice collection of tractors that my 7 year old son loved. The displays that were at up were done nicely. Many of the displays have a nice description, but others did not. There was soo much stuff there that I often found myself telking my son I dont know what that is. But I do think that it will be much more informative once they finish setting up. We entered family of 4 for donation of $20, but I think the actual door charge is a little less.

This museum is in it's infancy, but it's already worth the visit. Do you know where your whole grain cereal begins? Do you think cotton grows on trees? Most of us know we can count on the department store to sell us soft cotton towels, or the grocery store to sell us our favorite foods, but we seldom stop to think about where it all comes from.... visit the Ag Museum and learn.

If you are into antique tractors and farm equipment , this might just be your cup of tea. It is a rather small collection, though. They are trying to get more exhibits and will expand as time goes on.

If you like old farm machinery and tractors, this is a place for you to spend an afternoon.
Go when the weather is comfortable, there is no A/C. and some of the exhibits are outside.
