Central Washington Agricultural Museum
Central Washington Agricultural Museum. We invite you to explore & discover how the early settlers of Central Washington lived & worked the land to produce their food & make a living.The museum tells the story through 29 covered buildings & more than 15 acres of displays.
The Museum is located within Fullbright Park in Union Gap, Washington at the base of Ahtanum Ridge. Its park like surroundings are home to multitudes of horse drawn and early mechanical farm machinery, farm equipment and homesteads. The agricultural museum is designed to display large farm equipment in informative exhibits and in some cases actual operational representation. The museum is under continuous development. The public is welcome to view the progress. You’ll see machines that helped build this agricultural country into the bountiful croplands you see today. We have the Classic 10-20 McCormick Deering Tractor from Goldendale. We also have a portable hop picking machine, a pea picker and much more.
