Ag and Nature Lab
The place to explore agriculture and nature education.
There is always something going on!
Our exhibits change every month and programs pop up frequently. You might catch baby chicks hatching, a sheep shearing demo, or dig in the compost for worms. Enjoy working the manure spreader as you care for the cows in the dairy barn display, assist staff in releasing monarch butterflies, or role play moving crops and livestock across our roadways and rails.
This exhibit is great for...
encountering experiences and conversations about our natural world.
What's Going on in the Ag and Nature Lab?
Each month, discover a new exhibit in the Ag and Nature Lab at the Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota. You might learn about composting, watch animals grow, learn about how our food is grown and gets to the dinner table, or any number of other nature-based play activities! The Ag and Nature Lab exhibits are always included with admission or Museum membership.
