At the Manatee County Agricultural Museum you will explore five rooms featuring the county's primary commodities: Livestock, Vegetables, Citrus, Horticulture, and Commercial Fishing. Each room houses tools, equipment, photographs, and exhibits that reflect the area's rich heritage. Local farmers and interested citizens have contributed many of the artifacts that are contained in the Museum.
In addition to the commodity areas, the Museum is also home to a Library containing books and research materials, a Farm Shop and Garage where a restored 1925 Model T pickup truck is displayed, and the Barn where larger pieces of farm equipment are on display.
It's fun for the whole family!
While the adults are enjoying the museum exhibits, youngsters will appreciate the Junior Ag Spots scattered throughout the facility.
Storybooks about farming, vegetable puzzles and mazes, citrus tic tac toes, agricultural videos and more will provide hands-on learning for children of all ages.
