The Nebraska State Fair is looking to add to the experience with a new exhibit.

State Fair officials are offering a grain bin theater.

And, a virtual combine ride could also be included.

It's all part of a new exhibit at the Nebraska Building called the Nebraska Agriculture experience....

Construction will begin this spring.

The idea came from a partnership with the University of Nebraska and the Department of Agriculture.

"We think there are a lot of people even here in Nebraska that don't realize where their food comes from. So we started talking with the Department of Ag," Nebraska State Fair Executive Director Joseph McDermott said. 

The exact content is still being discussed...

McDermott says there are already fundraisers taking place for the exhibit.
