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.
