This is such a great way to experience the historical culture of Mississippi. There are several buildings on the premises, capturing everything from live animals in the stables, to the cotton gin, to an indoor museum with a ton of more information through reading and interactive artifacts. Perfect for a field trip, tourism, or to just hang out!

Went to Gingerbread Market Place held at the Museum. It was really nice and the whole area is great for families. Kids and adults alike will enjoy and learn a lot.

We enjoy the celtic fest there every year. The facilities are well maintained and perfect for large events. The museum is smallish but interesting. The old town section is a lot of fun for the kids. The old store really carries old time toys and candy.

Maybe if we had gone on a weekday more of the exhibits would have been open, but we went on a Saturday and over half of the buildings were padlocked! The only things you could see were what was visible through the windows that weren't shuttered and padlocked. The exhibits that were accessible were great but it would have been... More

I have been to the Agricultural and Forestry Museum many times and it never grows old. As an elementary school teacher, I found a field trip to the museum to be an excellent Mississippi history lesson. As a grandparent, it is a fun place to take my grandchildren on a nice day and just explore. As a photographer, it is... More

Having grown up a farm kid, by husband was especially interested in seeing the Ag Museum. We were not disappointed. Plan to spend most of the day there, as there is a lot to see. Start with the main building, which has an extensive museum, including lots of farm implements and tools, huge model train exhibits, displays depicting farm life... More

Visited the Museum with a group of 20. Given our schedule for the day, we allocated only an hour and 45 minutes for our tour. Two inside exhibits - the Main Building and the Fitzgerald Collection - were both interesting and COOL on a hot and humid fall day. The Main Building exhibits included farm implements, equipment, and tools; an... More

Another great fun and educational place to tour. Inside and out there is so much to see. They also have special events held her during the year. Worth the trip!

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

Nice little museum with some interesting things for the adults - lots and lots of room for your kids to run and roam. The general store provides a cool place on hot summer days. It is fun for the whole family.
