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.

I went to this museum because I was raised on a farm, my dad had a farm machinery business, and I saw they had old tractors. I was astounded at the scope and variety of not only tractors but other essentials of farm life. The eras covered ranged from horse-drawn equipment through the evolution of tractors until about 1970.

This museum more than exceeded my expectations! From the antique farm implements to the fascinating relics of life in a farmhouse to the educational (and fun) multi media exhibitions, this place gets an A+ in every area! I'll be bringing all my tourist friends to this place!

I was waiting for a museum to tell the story of cotton from see to harvest and it finally happened. They are always adding new exhibits. Thank you Bayer for helping make it happen.

I went with a group to the Bayer Museum of Agriculture. There were a lot of old machines used in the early days of farming displayed there and there was information on exactly what they were used for. In the main hall, they have a number of hands on exhibits to gain information of different crops that are planted around... More

I think the museum has existed for a couple of decades, but the new building and location I think has only been around two or three years. Seems as though they are still adding wonderful exhibits to a really interesting building. You will learn a lot about the details of farming, and especially cotton.

I really enjoy the display here of tractors and there is a lot of cotton info. There is an interactive experience as if you are sitting in a cotton gin.

If you enjoy looking at antique agricultural equipment or looking at the history of tractors and farm implements this is the place to visit. The place is very clean and there are ladies there to answer any questions you may have. The museum has hands on exhibits to experience operating some of the large farm equipment todays farmers use to... More

We took a group of Brazilian cotton growers to visit this museum, that a large collection of old machinery used by former farmers in cotton production. The museum also has a collection of miniature machinery.
