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.

Nice museum and event space

There are all sorts of displays about agriculture on the Southern Plains. The museum is mostly housed in two large silos. The event space is large and worked really well.

After viewing the windmill museum, drove right up the road to the Agriculture museum and saw many old tractors beside the road which was enough for me and didn't go into the museum.

Toured the museum and learned about cotton. The tractor museum was really neat. Many old models and equipment to view.

I've lived in Lubbock for 10 years now and never realized the Bayer Museum of Ag was that large and informative.

I had read about this museum in Texas HIghways. We thought we'd drop in. Well, we spent about an hour and a half and could have spent at least another hour. The front section has a lot of information with hands-on exhibits and games. In the middle section, we met some fascinating men who volunteer. One of them walked with... More

From past to present the Museum tell the story of how agriculture formed our nation. The interaction with exhibits and displays of everything are the best that I have ever seen. You'll see the blacksmith working, a mule drawn binder, tractors through the early years, cotton strippers. Almost live demonstrations of farming. They tell the story very well.

We Enjoyed roaming around learning about the various farm equipment from long ago. It was nice to see some things from the past and learn how they were used. Thank you Bayer Museum for saving some of our past to show our children how things use to be and work!

It you love agriculture or no nothing about it, you will be amazed at all of the tractors and interactive displays that are available. It was very educational and I was amazed how time flew by.

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!
