Overview
More
Located on the spacious grounds of the Ellington Agricultural Center, the Tennessee Agricultural Museum has an extensive collection of home and farm artifacts from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Log cabins, a small farm house, a kitchen/herb garden, perennial garden and nature trail are also part of the museum tour. Summer Saturdays are fun free family friendly themed events that give kids a taste of farm life and feature everything from grooming and riding miniature donkeys, milking goats, working with a blacksmith, making soap, or stopping by the cabins to see spinning wheels and weaving looms in action. Check out the stables where Nashville’s Mounted Police stable and train their horses. Although there is an occasional small fee for some activities, such as face painting or pony or donkey rides, admission to Summer Saturdays is free.

Figured we might as well go here as it was on the way to another attraction and it was free. Has lots to see if you're interested in agriculture. Was larger than we were expecting.

I found this museum to be very interesting. I visited with my children (5 and 2) and the biggest challenge was to keep their little hands off of everything (we visit many museums and usually this isn't a problem). I am not very knowledgeable about...More

I like old agricultural stuff... so I enjoyed it. Immaculately kept museum with friendly staff. Not for everyone. We combined it with trip to Belle Meade.
