Steeped in the rich history of its region, the West Tennessee Agricultural Museum presents life-size displays that depict the everyday challenges settlers faced opening a new territory. Throughout the museum, displays familiarize visitors with different aspects of a settler’s daily life. From children attending a one-room schoolhouse to the Sunday social at the old country church to the heat of the blacksmith’s shop, there is something for everyone to learn and enjoy at the museum.
Through displays of equipment and materials, photos and paintings, and an array of historical artifacts, the museum offers visitors a journey through time and the rich cultural heritage of agriculture and agrarian life in West Tennessee.
The museum’s collection was established by Tom McCutchen, known as the father of Tennessee no-till and the first superintendent of the Milan Experiment Station. More than 2,600 implements are on display in the 16,000-plus square foot museum. Admission is free and guided tours are available. Reservations are required for school and other large groups. The museum is handicapped accessible.
