Agricultural and Industrial Museum 1
York County's Agricultural and Industrial Museum is a growing, multi-building complex featuring hands-on exhibits of industrial artifacts dating from the early 19th century to the present.
The Museums offer a fine series of Family Programs called 'Lunch and Learn'. Programs relate to the seasons and, whether the subject is planting, harvesting, turkeys, the wind (in March), or whatever. The Program or Workshop offers plenty of hands-on activities that get kids, 3-11 years old, involved in learning. Programs last four hours.
Several other exhibits are available. This museum also includes a Gift Shop, a large Atrium and Lobby for private events, and an old-fashioned Ice Cream Parlor. Both of these museums offer the opportunity to see and sometimes handle the 'real thing.' A visit is exciting and a family or group could easily spend hours exploring all the things of yesteryear. Self-guided tours are ongoing; guided tours can be arranged for groups.
