Particularly, two buildings, Intelligent Agriculture Hall and Fun Agricultural Hall, are permanent exhibition halls.

The exhibition concept of Fun Agriculture Hall is based on “Fun with Agriculture Starts with A Lot and Thousands of Acres of Lands.” In the spacious landscape exhibition hall, stories of lands, crops, and farmers are presented with the agriculture, life, and humanity as the core.
