Farmyard

Agriculture is awesome, especially outdoors! Welcome to the Farmyard, a seasonal exhibit with a bounty of ways to explore how soil, seed, sun, and water work together to help plants, animals, and people thrive. You’ll be surrounded by planting beds and animal pens full of life and things to learn about, from veggies and herbs to cows and chickens.

There are always ways to help out and get dirty in the Farmyard. Come plant and water tomatoes, peppers, greens, corn, and more—then help during harvest time and learn about how people and animals use crops to grow.

The Farmyard offers a hands-on chance to connect with the way farming is done in Minnesota. We’re excited to showcase a wide variety of farm animals in our Ridley Farm Animal Experience exhibit. New farm animals will be joining us later this spring.
