Tgis is the place to go if you are into old and antique farm equipment. It would be a perfect field trip for kids or for family outting for kids 5-10. It's a great way to educate kids on where their food comes from. Not so much of an adult activity.

We happened to be driving past on the way to the local golf course and stopped in ... this is not my normal word, but the exhibits were informative and opened up a world that was unfamiliar to me. Interesting.

Driving to Lawrence from KC, we saw a sign for the "National Agriculture Hall of Fame" ... how could we not stop for that? So we detoured off the interstate and pulled into an empty parking lot. A very kind woman came out of the building asking if we were lost [we weren't, we were intentionally there in the dead... More

The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame is a decent museum over a nice area of land. It has a memorial hall where you enter and then a variety of buildings that house exhibits related to agriculture. There is an area about chickens and eggs, a one room school, a general store, blacksmith, train depot and a huge barn... More

This offers a lot of unique exhibits about agriculture and farming. And even outside they have a barn full of equipment that you can look at and even touch. Plenty of parking and not too far off of 70. If you are into farming and agriculture I was sure it will be a very nice treat

I kind of liked it, but it is poorly thought out it basically is a wharehouse with things parked in it. Maybe some audio visual displays showing the machinery at work? I don't know, just not a place I would go to again.

We didn't get to spend allot of time there because we got there fairly close to closing time. The exhibits were interesting but there were several items that were not marked and we didn't know what they were. A tractor on display had a flat tire and I didn't think that looked too good.

Website did not list hours or admission fee. Admission is $5. Email them for open hours . On Memorial Day , except for 4 employees, we were the only ones there. Rather sparse displays spread over a large area. The old farm equipment is interesting but mostly to the older generation who had used it or knew some one who... More

Having come from a long line of farmers, I never forget how much we must rely upon the farmers to feed us. The history of farming is something too many of us take for granted. This Center helps us remember. I'm also partial to the Wyandotte County Master Gardeners' Demonstration Garden on the grounds west of the main building. My... More

The Center and Hall of Fame was not quite what I thought it might be, but I learned some. I was not aware that country singer Willie Nelson has been inducted. There are plenty of old tractors and other farm equipment. There is also a Poultry museum, where you can read about poultry farming and see some of the old... More
