The Jackson Rhythm and Blues Festival was held here, and I absolutely enjoyed it. No words can describe the friendliness of the people in Jackson, MS and the great food we ate while attending the event. Will be back next year

Not to mention the various phenomenal photo opportunities to be had here. I grew up visiting the Ag Museum, and it just keeps getting better over the years. My children adore the vast model train exhibit inside, while my husband can't get enough of the crop dusters. And I like strolling the grounds and rose garden, visiting the General Store, and climbing through the cotton gin. There's something for everybody here.

The last time I had previously visited this park was in elementary school... We decided to take our kids to the museum and they absolutely loved it! There was plenty of space outside for them to run around and explore all of the amazing building from the past...They learned about how things were done before modern luxuries. They were amazed at the buildings and at the machines inside the museum buildings. They loved the nature trail they were looking for the forestry signs so that they could call out the types of trees. Being 10 and 8 I thought these boys would be bored with this place but they had an amazing time...We ended the trip to this place with a glass bottle coke and a trip to the gift shop!

We have visited the museum twice. It is an excellent place to go to visit the indoor and outdoor attractions. There is a lot to see and do. However, do pay attention to the warning signs in the parking lot about locking your car and securing your valuables. The first time we visited, when we came out to the parking lot we noticed some police cars, and were told someones car was broken into. The next time we visited our truck was broken into. Apparently, from speaking with the Jackson Police Department this attraction is prime picking for car thieves, hence the warning signs in the parking lot. You would think the State of Mississippi would put in a security guard or security cameras. Too late for us, but if you go, be careful where you park and what you leave in your vehicle.

We visited this museum on June 16th. There is a free parking lot shared with the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum (Cool Papa Bell Drive). The museum is informative. We learned how they harvest Catfish. Not all the buildings were open when we visited.
