Agricultural technology

On a 500 square meter covered area, the Börde Museum presents part of its agricultural technology collection. The focus is on the development of the energetic basis. The first machines that replaced muscle power in processing and later in tillage and harvesting were the steam engines. Regionally, there were four important producers, three of which are represented in the exhibition.

The Magdeburg Börde developed into a main area of use for steam plows. Thus, one of the most important tasks of the museum is to collect and preserve evidence of this era. From the mid-1970s to the present day, a considerable steam plow collection has thus been created, which is counted as the most complete in Europe. Ten different exhibits on the steam plow simultaneously document the basic equipment of a contract plowing company.

Thus, about 30 exhibits can be viewed, a large part of which has a real rarity value.
