Overview

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.

There are all sorts of displays about agriculture on the Southern Plains. The museum is mostly housed in two large silos. The event space is large and worked really well.

After viewing the windmill museum, drove right up the road to the Agriculture museum and saw many old tractors beside the road which was enough for me and didn't go into the museum.
