Was a vendor at Dover Days so I didn't have the time I wanted to, but I did a quick reconnoiter. So amazing!

This museum is a must see for history lovers! Very few people seem to know about this place, since we didn't cross paths with anyone during the visit. It is a shame for the government not to be funding the museum's activities. We spent almost three hours wandering about the premises. The well documented exhibits featured the daily life of... More

Wow! What a great collection of historical agricultural museum. Even if agriculture isn't your thing, you will enjoy the village located behind the main barn. They have an incredible collection of historic buildings that were relocated to the museum. The buildings will take you back in time. There are a considerable number of wasps, so be careful.

This is a museum that you need to relax and take time to read the info on the equipment . We found it to be very interesting . We spent a couple of hours marveling on how they improved the equipment as farming advanced.

Wow! When I first passed by this museum all i thought was "its just a barn? it so small" well i can officially retract that statement! This museum was a very interesting experience with alot of different exhibits and the 1890s village gives a time travel trip to experience the lifestyle back in the 1800s. You will not be disappointed

A nice walk around both inside the building and outside of old agriculture vehicles and implements. Stop outside to see Lulu the pig. Nominal charge to visit.

The staff is very friendly, and the grounds are very child-friendly for exploration. Many of the exhibits have pieces that children are allowed to touch, and the live animals are friendly as well.
