Located in downtown Lubbock, the FiberMax Center for Discovery is a non-profit organization that preserves the history of, tells the story of, and instills pride in American Agriculture and values. The Alton Brazell Exhibit Hall takes visitors back to the pioneering years of agriculture. Here you'll find restored tractors, field condition equipment, horse-drawn plows, planters and cultivators, household items, and a farm toy collection with 71 pedal tractors and over 700 toy tractors. The central exhibit hall features exhibits on the major crops grown in the US, the science of cotton production, the history of irrigation and underground pumps, women's contributions to agriculture, along with an interactive cotton harvester, and a fully restored 1958 Ag Cat crop dusting plane. With the help of Redbox Workshop of Chicago, the museum is currently in the process of developing a one-of-a-kind children's wing where the story of agriculture will be told through interactive exhibits and gross motor play. The combination of interactive technology with farming artifacts in a truly unique venue makes for a first-class museum experience.
