Creating a Classroom for Agriculture


The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame is a great place to visit! Come out and explore the historical exhibits and National Agricutural Hall of Fame. Learn about agriculture – past, present and future – on our tours and at our special events. Our grounds are a beautiful venue for weddings, and our facilities provide lots of options for meetings, corporate events, reunions, campouts or other special events.

We have fun events every year, including Barnyard Babies Family Festival in April, a Tractor Cruise in May, Show ‘n Shine car show in July, International Linemen’s Rodeo in October, and Santa’s Express County Christmas and 5K Run in December. We welcome school groups and offer state accredited programs for ages K-12.
