About Us

The Florida Agricultural Museum was established in 1983 by a group of concerned agriculturalists and historians at the request of Agricultural Commissioner Doyle Conner to help preserve this important part of Florida's heritage. Originally located in Tallahassee, the museum was part of the Division of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

In 1992, it was designated the “Museum of Agriculture and Rural History of the State of Florida” under Florida Statute. In 1997, the Florida Agricultural Museum moved to its new home on 460 acres in Flagler County. All of the Museum’s buildings were moved from their original locations and renovated with grant funds provided by the Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources.

Adam Putnam, current Commissioner of Agriculture, will continue the tradition of Commissioners Doyle Conner, Bob Crawford, Terrie Rhodes, and Charles Bronson by working to educate Floridians about the history, importance and contributions of agriculture to our state. Commissioner Putnam, a Florida farmer himself, understands the issues facing agriculture in Florida and the nation. His leadership will ensure that Florida agriculture continues to be a strong and growing component of our state’s economy and in feeding the people of Florida, our nation and other countries.

In addition to preserving Florida's agricultural past, the Museum is also active in the conservation of heritage livestock including rare Florida Cracker cattle and horses. The Florida Agricultural Museum provides a fun and educational experience for all ages. Flagler County and the St. Augustine area lead the state in historic sites. Only 25 minutes from downtown St. Augustine, the Florida Agricultural Museum is one of Flagler County’s most popular attractions.

The Museum is a private non-profit (501.C3) corporation led by a board of trustees; public spirited volunteers from across the state who share a common interest in Florida agriculture.

An up and coming area attraction with educational and recreational activities. You can tour historic buildings, board or ride a horse, hike the backwoods with connector trails to additional parks, hold a wedding, attend summer camp, or enjoy the Thursday "Market & Music". The rustic landscape and hominess merit a "5" but until the programs are fully operational the facility gets a "4".

Our family really enjoyed the two hour tour. Our guide shared interesting historical information about the structures, living conditions and agricultural methods of the late 1800's and early 1900's. Children would really enjoy the wagon ride and animals.

We visited with my 8 Y/o daughter several days ago. The Women who gave the tour of the different building that made up the museum was great and the best part of our visit. We horse back ride for a while but the tour guide did very little talking and was mostly taking pictures of us.
