Manatee County Agricultural Museum

1015 Sixth St. W., Palmetto, FL

Facing Bradenton across the Manatee River, the town of Palmetto has historically equated with tomatoes. Although its modern-day reputation floats also on its nautical nature, Palmetto still stays true to its farming roots.

Manatee County Agricultural Museum honors those roots. Within its barn-like structure, it holds a growers hall of fame, hands-on activities for kids, antique farming equipment, and displays that trace Palmetto’s farming and fishing roots. It sits adjacent to Palmetto Historical Park.

10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and the first and third Saturdays of the month
