Tennessee Agricultural Museum

Welcome

The Tennessee Agricultural Museum, located on the spacious grounds of the Ellington Agricultural Center, has an extensive collection of home and farm artifacts from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Exhibited in a renovated plantation barn, the museum features textiles, a woodworking collection, blacksmith shop, wagons and large equipment such as a Jumbo steam engine. The experience continues with log cabins, farm house, one-room school, gardens and nature trails.

The Museum building is temporarily closed. We anticipate re-opening in early June. In the meantime, please visit our log cabin area, heirloom garden and Strasser Experience Center with analemmatic sundial. Our “Rural Life Festival” will take place as scheduled, utilizing the outdoor exhibit areas.
