Boring, educational stop. Probably a good place to take a local school field trip at the end of school. We were not interested in Missisisippi forestry or agriculture. Besides, the place closed before the tour arrived. They allowed us to drive in and turn around....More

Had the pleasure of attending a company event hosted here, and enjoyed the facility and the exhibits more than I expected to. My husband and daughter both agreed. Worth exploring!

We have been here before and I reviewed it highly then. We came back on our next trip and the kids demanded that we stop here again. It is hands down the best family museum we have been to (and we do this a lot)....More

An interesting visit to Mississippi's past. The General Store carried a lot of state products. The doctors office was interesting, a real salute to how far the medical community has come. I highly recommend this museum.

I've been visiting this place since I was a little girl and it is always neat. The grounds are well kept and the staff is friendly. It's also a good place to host events.

This place is a nice walk back in time and a great way to learn about some Mississippi history! Be sure to check out the vast arrowhead collection during the tour of the grounds. Great place for a student field trip!
