School & Group Visits

Education is important to the Museum staff. We want to help educators encourage students to learn about Florida’s agricultural history. We will customize a tour for your students based on the age group and your current curriculum. Students will be led to draw comparisons between the lives of rural farm families and their own lives. They will gain an appreciation of Florida’s rural past through hands-on activities. We make sure your students have a fun learning experience.
  • Take a guided tour of a fully furnished and functional 1890’s farmhouse.
  • Hands-on farm activities – children can collect eggs, pump water, shuck corn, wash clothes, and more.
  • Ride through the woods on tractor-pulled trailers.
  • Meet the farm animals – Cracker horses, Cracker cattle, a donkey, chickens, ducks and Sally the farm dog
  • Picnic at the Dairy Barn (optional; bring your own). Tables and chairs available. Cold water and drinks available for purchase onsite.
