What is there to do?

The agricultural industry in the USA is a fascinating one! In fact, life just wouldn't be the same today without it - so it makes sense that the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame was created to celebrate just that!

This Kansas museum offers a number of exhibits that showcase the history of farming and agriculture, and gives kids a chance to learn all about this important area within this great country.

Each of the exhibits at the center cover a different topic, and offers fun learning for those curious kids! You can visit the Museum of Farming, where there is 20,000 sq ft of space devoted to antique farm machinery and artifacts. Can you imagine what it would have been like to use those back in the day? Pretty tough work!

The Gallery of Art showcases rural artifact, including the plow owned by US President Harry S. Truman himself! There is also an 1902 Dar truck, and a hoarse-drawn mail wagon. Amazing!

Ding Ding - must the bell for school! Don't worry kids, we don't mean YOUR school! At the National Agricultural Center you can visit Farm Town, and attend the one room school from 1917! In fact, you can actually experience an entire day, with state accredited curriculum. Seats please!

Farm Town also features a blacksmith shop, general store and hatchery. Don't miss the ride on teh narrow-gauge Union Pacific for a ride around the amazing lake!

Who knew the history of agriculture could be so fascinating! So head on over to Kansas and experience this amazing part of American history. You'll be surprised what you learn!
