You will be surprised at the amount of agriculture there is in Manatee county. The museum is divided up into the various different farming in the county from citrus, dairy, vegetables, cattle ranching and machinery used in an early era.

This is (was) a very agricultural county. Lots of old buildings and farm implements. Combine this with a trip to Gamble Plantation and Palmetto historical park and you'll have a good grip on antebellum Florida. Very inexpensive or free.

This was a great place to get a feel for the local agricultural history of Manatee County. Our three year old was very captivated by all of the exhibits. Most of the items are "touchable". An awesome experience!

It is small museum but nice. Shocking to some there was history in Florida and it is based on agriculture not tourism.

For a small venue this museum has done a great job. Tied to the historical park it makes for a very enjoyable business. The old Carnegie Library is next door. It is easy to find and across from beautiful Sutton Park and the public Library....More
