I used this place to host a concert for the group Compozitionz. They performed in the Sparkman auditorium; one of the buildings on site. There are several buildings that represent the "old south". A slave quarters; an old jail; an older gas station; an old school church. It is VERY interesting. Be sure to take your camera with you (with... More

This place is packed with neat exhibits and fun things to see. I been through the main building a couple of times to see the quilts hanging from the ceiling and to look at all the other items too. The quilts change a few time a year, so I'll be back again to see future sets. I'm looking forward to... More

I know of no where else you can take group of children/adults and visit an old farming community and home town with live animals, syrup making, ginning cotton and fresh biscuits with the syrup. Also the old tractors, equipment and old airplanes are outstanding in the museum with all the history that goes with it.

This is a great place to visit for adults of all ages or families with children. The museum building is very interesting and the exhibits are well done. You will have the opportunity to walk through many restored buildings, typical of those found in small town Mississippi from the past. The exhibits include a working sugar cane syrup mill. There...

This is a well done museum about the agricultural past of Mississippi. It not only has the indoor museum, which includes the National Agricultural Aviation Museum, but it also has buildings that have been donated and moved to the site. There is a cotton gin that is the oldest gin in operation in the nation. If you come in the... More

Well worth it if you enjoy slightly mad museums. The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed our afternoon there.
