The Museum of Agriculture and the Rural World is housed in the Este fortress, a monumental building in the town centre set in a vast park.
It collects, preserves, studies, and promotes the testimonies and life experiences of peasants, landowners, and artisan in the middle and upper Po Plain east of Reggio Emilia prior to agricultural mechanization and industrial production.
The museum is very active in working with schools, families, and adults. School projects and educational exhibits are borne out of a constant dialogue with all of the area’s educational institutions. For adults and families, the Museum organizes evening classes, visits, games, workshops, and Sunday afternoon tastings.
