Toys AND learning? Could it possibly be? Yep! At the National Farm Toy Museum, there are thousands of toys and exhibits located on it's two floors for kids to learn from and explore!
As they walk around the exhibits, they can learn all about the history of agriculture through fascinating farm toys - from original artworks to dioramas. The museum has all the brands you know and love - from John Deere, Massey Gerguso to Case IH - just to name a few!
The great thing about the National Farm Toy Museum is that you don't have to know much about tractors or farming to enjoy your time there. It's for everyone!
The farm toy museum came about from just an idea and a passion from enthusiastic collections and hobbyists - and a small collection great into needing more space, and thus the museum was born! So the people behind the museum truly love what they do, so will be happy to answer any questions about the toys or the farms that you might have. It's also the only way you will learn!
The museum pays tribute to the farm machinery of yesterday, and today - with thousands of miniature replicas on display, as well as being home to five farm toy stores, three farm toy companies, two national farm toy shows, and a partridge in a pear tree...no only kidding, the last one is the Summer Farm Toy Show!
