The Manitoba Agricultural Museum is dedicated to collecting vintage farm machinery and buildings from 1900 and beyond. Located on 320 acres near Austin, Manitoba, to date we have amassed over 500 pieces of machinery; and Homesteaders’ Village, consisting of more than 20 buildings complete with artifacts. This is Canada’s largest collection of vintage agricultural equipment. The facilities include camping and picnic grounds and Oakview, our gift shop.
Throughout the year the Museum offers various tours, schools and hands-on experiences climaxing with the Annual Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede and various other expositions.
Please be sure to check out the Events page, or browse the calendar on the left side of this screen to see what’s coming up at the Museum.

The Museum is open from 9am to 4:30pm, MONDAY to FRIDAY (except holidays).
Visitors can view our collection of equipment, the indoor exhibits in the Pioneer Centre, and wander through the Homesteader’s Village buildings; the Village buildings have been closed for winter; and will re-open on May 12, 2017.
Everyone’s favorite, Big Roy, is away from the Museum for the winter months and will return in the spring of 2017. With plans to build a permanent new Home Building for Big Roy, you can purchase a raffle ticket to “Drive BIG ROY” – a privilege that few receive !
We look forward to welcoming visitors when the 2017 season opens on Manitoba Day – May 12, 2017 – join us that day for Manitoba’s 147th birthday Celebration !
