Hello and thank you for your interest in
and support of the Pasto Agricultural Museum!

If you missed us, be sure to visit Saturday May 19 from 9am-3pm, and for Ag Progress Days.

And we’ll continue our schedule of Open Houses every Penn State Home Football Sunday from 1-4pm this season.

Volunteers & potential Volunteers:

We will be meeting regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 2pm.

Join us when you can! Bring a brown bag lunch; coffee, tea, and water provided.

Our work continues, as we:

  • Complete “Kitchen & Home Food Processing” and “Hay Making” exhibits. We’ll be constructing and painting platforms and exhibits. We will be designing signage and adding more photos and descriptions.
  • Prepare a special exhibit to open May 19th, of manual tools for the serious gardener…never-before-exhibited items pulled out from storage to share with visitors!
  • Provide much needed TLC, cleaning, cataloguing, and careful re-hanging artifacts in the collection.
  • Manage a full calendar of group tours: adults and school children, and we need guides to facilitate visitors’ experience of the museum collection.
  • Plan fundraising activities that may include the return of the much-missed Silent Auction; coordinators are needed! As are items for the auction.

Note that in case of inclement weather, we follow the State College Area School District delay and cancellation announcements. Visit for the latest update.
