Plan Your Visit

The Stockyards Ag Experience Barn is now open! Join us to experience the history of the stockyards and learn how food goes from the farm to your table. We have experiences for all ages  – from interactive, kid-friendly displays to learning experiences for food enthusiasts.

We are excited to welcome folks to the Stockyards Ag Experience, but we ask our guests to be mindful of our protocols and procedures in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and keep our staff and visitors safe.

  • Masks are required for all our staff and visitors. We ask that you bring your own mask, but disposable masks will be available. 
  • If you feel sick, stay home! This also applies if someone in your household is ill. If you’re feeling under the weather, please plan on visiting another time. 
  • Please social distance. This means keeping yourself six feet (or one cow, two pigs, or three sheep) apart while visiting. 
  • There will be limited entry. Only groups of six or fewer people and two per level will be permitted during operating hours. If groups have six or more visitors, we will limit them to one group per level. 
  • No public water fountain.
  • Use the provided hand sanitizer upon entry and before touching any interactive displays from the additional hand sanitizer stations we have set up. 
  • There will be a reduced number of kitchen items in the Farm-to-Table exhibit. The kitchen and grocery store area will have a reduced number of products for play and items will be disinfected between each visitor. 
  • Donations are more important than ever! If you can, please consider donating on our website or by texting STOCKYARDS to 44321. Donations help us keep our doors open and our surfaces sanitized!

The Stockyards Ag Experience hours of operation are seasonal, but additional hours and group tours are available by appointment with at least 48 hours notice. Please contact us here to set up an appointment.
