Pasto Agricultural Museum at Penn State
2710 West Pine Grove Road
Pennsylvania Furnace, PA 16865
The Pasto Agricultural Museum connects the science and history of our agricultural past with the present day for almost 10,000 visitors per year.
Exhibits, programs, demonstrations and tours provide an understanding of our local and regional history, where our food comes from, and the inventions and technology that have made food production on a large scale possible. The museum collection focuses on what life was like and how work was done before gasoline engines and rural electrification, through the 1930s. Programs at the museum immerse visitors, students, research faulty, and professionals, in thinking about our food and fiber systems and natural resources. Highlighting current agricultural science research and practice, the museum provides a forum for exploring important issues facing agriculture and the environment.
