I took my children to this wonderful place for years and now that I have granddaughters I was excited to take them. The employees at the museum were nice. The museum was also good. It was the grounds and out buildings that were so disappointing. They were not in good shape. The grounds seemed to be unattended with weeds and... More

Museum not only tells the history of Mississippi agriculture and forestry but has much more: the heritage center gallery displays artifacts and exhibits; the Fortenberry-Parkman Farmstead is a designated state landmark and a living history exhibit dating back to the 1860s with original buildings that were in operation for more than 100 years; the smalltown exhibit is a typical 1920s...

Really cool museum. A lot of outdoor activities and walk-through buildings. We brought our kids here and there was something for each of them. Nature trails, old school house, general store, post office, cotton gin, you name it. Loats of fun

There was a fire here in the fall. Certain areas are not open to the public because of this. Be sure to call and check on the restoration progress.

Visit the Ag Museum a couple of times while we lived in the Jackson area...a nice spot for a small wedding. Did not get to really check out the Museum and the model trains until attending a child's birthday party with family. The Ag Museum was the perfect place for a birthday party with the animals and train ride around... More

A well organised venue with free parking. It was well worth the $6 entry fee. There was a 19th century street moved from Mississippi to Jackson with a school, church, general store and many more buildings. A cotton gin was in action as well as a sawmill and a water pump. Sugar cane was being processed. A huge model railway... More

See the real "old town Mississippi" that has been dismantled from it's original location and reassembled here- from the general store to the old church where weddings are still held. Then go to the nation's only agricultural aviation museum. It's well worth it if you take the time.

Admission fee to this museum is only $5 and it is worth more. The main building, which is huge, has quite a few exhibits. Inside are vintage aircraft, automobiles, and farm equipment. There is a cotton gin and cotton picker as well as chain saws and other tools. There are two electric train exhibits with volunteers available to run the... More
