Discover the Barns

In a barn, a group of young students walk in line past a series of stalls where dairy cows are lying down.

Program Description

In this introduction to agriculture, students explore the museum’s barns and meet a wide range of farm animals, from the tiny domestic honeybee to the gigantic Clydesdale horse. Students learn about animal husbandry, and where food comes from. They also discover various careers within the agri-food sector, and the roles that science and technology play in today’s agricultural industry.
