Tgis is the place to go if you are into old and antique farm equipment. It would be a perfect field trip for kids or for family outting for kids 5-10. It's a great way to educate kids on where their food comes from. Not so much of an adult activity.
We happened to be driving past on the way to the local golf course and stopped in ... this is not my normal word, but the exhibits were informative and opened up a world that was unfamiliar to me. Interesting.
