Come see us! The 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 along with rural Tennessee prints. Textiles, a woodworking collection, buggies, wagons and large items like the McCormick reaper and Jumbo steam engine are exhibited in a renovated plantation barn. Log cabins, a small farm house, kitchen/herb garden, perennial garden and nature trail are also part of the museum tour. We were featured in an article on HelloNashville.


The self-guided tour is free for individuals. Group reservations are required with a small fee for demonstrations and educational programs. The museum is handicapped accessible with ample bus parking. Hours are weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. except on state holidays. Call to confirm hours during inclement weather. For organized activities, reservations are required. Call (615) 837-5197 for scheduling. Advance notice is expected if there is a cancellation or change in number.
