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

This is a very well organized and well appointed museum really worth visiting. The main building alone would be worth the entrance fee. It contains displays about the dairy industry, the history of cotton, collection of old tractors and tools, agricultural and aviation artifacts, several beautiful quilts, and displays of electric trains that will bring back the child in you....

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,... More

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...
