Creating a Classroom for Agriculture
The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame
We were chartered by Congress in 1960 to serve as the national agriculture museum and memorial to farming leaders. Our mission is to provide education on the historical and present value of American agriculture and to honor leadership in agribusiness and academia. Come visit us!
Education is at the forefront of our purpose and is interwoven in everything we do. Whether exploring the museum exhibits and living history displays on your own or on a guided tour, you’ll gain a greater understanding of our agricultural past and future. Check out our free monthly Farm Tales programs for children. We also offer guided tours for school groups and adult groups.
We host several fun, family-friendly events throughout the year. Check them out here, and come back often as we add more events.
Looking for a place for your wedding, or to host a meeting or party? Our grounds are the perfect spot! Our facilities provide lots of options for wedding, meetings, corporate events, reunions, campouts or other special events. Rentals are available year ’round.
Hours: Beginning October 2, 2021 our regular museum hours end. Our 2022 season will open with Barnyard Babies Family Festival on April 23. If you are traveling through Kansas City and would like to stop by, or have a group of school children who would like an educational field trip, please call to make arrangements. We are always happy to show you the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame. Call 913-721-1075.
Admission: Suggested donation of $5 per person.
