More than 40 years ago, Dr. William Murray had a vision for a 500 acre tract of land located just outside Des Moines: create a living history museum to preserve and teach generations to come about America's agricultural heritage. Today, Living History Farms is a renowned not-for-profit agricultural museum that brings that vision to life. The foresight of Dr. Murray still guides the museum as we continue to educate, entertain and connect people of all ages to Midwestern rural life experiences. But we can't do it alone. The success of our mission depends on support from people like you who share Dr. Murray’s vision.
Cash gifts provide general operating support to all areas of the museum. These gifts make it possible for Living History Farms to sustain the quality of our programs and services. Please click "donate now" to make a gift to Living History Farms today!
