We were traveling along I-75 so we decided to stop. Very educational displays. Friendly staff. Very clean restrooms. We were there less than 30 minutes. Definitely recommend!

Good display. They have complimentary peanuts, but didn't feel comfortable taking any because I felt the receptionist kept watching me

If you have ever wondered where that jar of peanut butter on your table or the peanuts in your Snickers bar came from you can find the answer right here. One visit here and you will come to appreciate the peanut and the contribution the peanut industry makes to feeding America and the world.

Fun but minimal

The Peanut Museum isn't open on Mondays so we chose to stop in here based on reviews. We're glad we stopped but ten minutes was enough to see the whole thing. We did learn some interesting things about how peanuts are grown.

They had samples out of two different peanuts. Receptionist isn't really there to greet casual drop-ins, I don't think. She did say hello and left us to wander on our own.

Great place to learn about the number one crop in Georgia and sample the nuts. And just across the interstate is the Peanut Museum.

Had seen numerous billboards. Wanted to buy pecan. VERY EXPENSIVE! Not worth the effort to get off the interstate!!

We hate to hear you had an unpleasant experience; however, we do not sell anything other than Georgia peanuts at our office. We fear you may have confused us with another local business in town that does sell pecans. If you ever find yourself back in the area, we do hope you stop in at the Georgia Peanut Commission off of exit 63B for some free peanut samples!

We stopped here not knowing what to expect. The Peanut commission is a great place to learn about how peanuts are grown, harvested and processed. The grounds are quite as well. There's a pond and a park-like area to stop and relax.

Surround yourself in history.
Jul 2016 • Family
We have visited this living history complex on 3 different occasions and discovered something new each time. This is a fantastic opportunity to see how things were accomplished without any electricity. They use steam powered machines and the force of water. There are different time periods represented through their farmhouses during the 1800's. The interpreters that are available sporadically around the complex are knowledgeable about the time periods covered and can explain how things were done. We spent over an hour in the newspaper office learning about the advancements in the printing press. We also spent 30 minutes visiting with some lovely ladies who told us about the family that actually lived in the house in the past and how things were done back then. Most of the buildings on site were actually moved from other areas around Georgia and have quite a history to them. We only spent four hours here but could have spent much more, but sadly we had to get on the road to reach our next destination on time. If you are interested in learning about history and actually having it demonstrated for you (printing press, sawmill, grist mill, woodworking, turpentine making, farming, etc) this place is for you..

quick peanut education
Jun 2016 • Family
Great place to learn about peanuts from the professionals, ie. Georgia peanut farmers. Beautiful educational and display area. Very informative for a quick stop, and the peanuts are great. Right beside Interstate 75 in Tifton for easy access.
