Since its renovation in 2009 the agricultural museum of the Joanneum is located in the castle Strainz in Graz. The collection is closely connected to the founder of the Universal museum Joanneum archduke Johann. In 1819 he founded the k.k. agriculture association, which recorded agricultural machinery and equipment. These recordings were then reproduced and collected.
