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...

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... More

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.

The price is right! $5 for an adult. They have lots of really old farm and forestry artifacts. If you like big old machinery you can get close to and really see their workings, this is the place to visit. Be sure to visit the Fitzgerald building in the far back behind the main building. It has AC (bonus!) and... More

I enjoyed everything about this place. The old town was the best part for me. Brought back a lot of old memories. Thanks for having a place like this. My Wife and children all loved it too.

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

Loved every part of this place. Had a replica if the city with lots of model trains. Very educational and lots of interesting facts. Loved the "old town Mississippi" even have a General Store. This is a must.
