An interesting visit to Mississippi's past. The General Store carried a lot of state products. The doctors office was interesting, a real salute to how far the medical community has come. I highly recommend this museum.

I've been visiting this place since I was a little girl and it is always neat. The grounds are well kept and the staff is friendly. It's also a good place to host events.

This place is a nice walk back in time and a great way to learn about some Mississippi history! Be sure to check out the vast arrowhead collection during the tour of the grounds. Great place for a student field trip!

I went as a chaperone on a 1st grade field trip. I must say that despite it being super packed with many other buses and students, it was well organized and had plenty stations to visit in case yours was busy. They offered a hayride tour, cookie, milk, free pumpkin which was awesome, a brief song & dance, & lots... More

While visiting relations in Jackson we visited this museum on a pumpkin day, not sure of the official name. The admission included a hay ride & a pumpkin. Our grandchildren had a great time. We also enjoyed the exhibits with the children being entranced by the elaborate train layout. We hope to return as it is hard to see everything... More

Very interesting museum to learn about Mississippi's Agriculture and Forestry. Great exhibit of tools. There is a little but of everything here. The model trains were a lovely surprise and fun to look at. Outdoor building were very nice and decorated for Fall. The staff were all very friendly.

We visited during the Celtic Festival, which ended up being worse than on a day with no special events. The displays in the main building were very interesting, including the history of different types of saw mills, crop dusting planes, and a huge model railroad.

The Mississippi Ag museum was a nice exhibit of Mississippi's agricultural past. They had a nice collection of old tractors, cars, and railroad paraphanelia, plus a great collection of farm tools and machines used in agriculture anywhere from the late 1800's through present day. The exhibits are interactive with lots of buttons to push to engage visitors. Outside the main... More
