Manatee County Agricultural Museum
1015 6th Street West, Palmetto, FL 34221 - United States
The Manatee County Agricultural Museum tells the story of Manatee County's agricultural heritage primarily through their collections, exhibits and interactive stations throughout the museum. Founded in 2002, the Ag Museum has collected agricultural equipment, vehicles, and implements from some of the pioneer farmers in Manatee County, and share how agriculture continues to impact everyone's daily lives.
The Manatee County Agricultural Museum's current special exhibit is It Started With A Seed: Celebrating Our 20th Anniversary. This exhibit tells the story of how a group of citizens who wanted to preserve Manatee County's agricultural heritage came together to begin the Museum.
We will also have a craft station set up during open hours.
