Fun on the farm, that describes the Florida Agricultural Museum. Visit our 1890 Florida Cracker home complete with rare heritage livestock (Cracker Cows, Cracker Horses and the Florida piney woods rooter hog). Chickens, ducks and a tame turkey greet our visitors before they depart on a tractor ride tour of the museum's historic farm buildings. Guided horseback riding is available by reservation. Horseback ride along beautiful trails over our 400 acre property or ride your horse over Interstate 95 on the "horses only" bridge to an adjoining 3000 acres of riding trails. Camping with or without your horse is available. You can also visit the Hewitt's Sawmill Archaeological Site located on a heavily treed 3/4 mile hiking trail. Discover the site of a water powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813. We also rent Governor Caldwell's 5000 square foot diary barn for parties and wedding receptions. You can even get married lake side under a canopy trees. Everything at our museum is real. Not a plastic rock in the place. Come visit us and you will learn some Florida history and you might even carry home a free souvenir on your shoe. Your tour will last at lease an hour but the memories will last forever.

This is a nice few hours if you need something to do. Unfortunately they are struggling to have volunteers and funding. There are horse and donkey stables where kids can touch. The guide takes you on the back of a tractor around old homes and cow land. He gives you the history and you can go inside the buildings. There... More

Came when it was supposed to be open. Parked and a woman came out seeming bothered that we were here. No tours, no rides. Would have given a 1, but kiddo liked the cat and seeing the horses and chickens. Unless you're near here for something else pass over for some other activity.

Went first week in January. Looked online and looked interesting but we were disappointed. There were no signs saying it was closed so we rang for service. A lady came out with a 'doubt bother me' look and said no guides to take on tour. Only had a few horses scattered, a couple of goats, some rabbits in a cage... More

I grew up in Ormond Beach, which is less than 30 minutes away and I never knew this place existed. What a find! Since it was December, they were open by appointment only. We called one morning and they were able to find a guide for us that afternoon. There were 12 of us, including several small kids. I think... More

We went horseback riding with Cheryl at the Florida Agricultural Museum and it was GREAT! We booked a one hour ride for my birthday, and got to see a wide variety of landscapes including thick woods, a lake, a river and a unique "land bridge" over Rt 95. The horses were great on the trail, and Cheryl was a very... More

On the final day of our two-day trip to St. Augustine with my family, we decided to head here since our daughter loves petting zoos and we wanted her to see some animals and get her outdoors. Well, the day we happened to be there, there were no guides around and so the only staff person there could just show... More

We have been to the Museum before and enjoyed it very much. This time we decided to go for a trail ride on the horses at the museum and what an amazing time we had.

Unfortunately we went on a day when the tour-guide had a personal emergency, but the staff was very kind and showed us around for free just to see the livestock and tell a bit about the history. They keep cracker horses and cattle, the original breeds brought by the Spanish centuries ago. It was quite interesting and if I ever... More
