A Piece of History
Nov 2019
A few hours here is well spent. There was much to see and learn about through out the exhibits. They have buildings which have been moved from various places in Mississippi forming an old town. I loved seeing the old gas station. One of the exhibit buildings has small airplanes used for crop dusting. This was a treat to see up close.

Very eye opening opportunity to go visit and see how things really were in the Old South. There were very, very, very few wealthy people, most folks had large families that were their work force. Lets people see how poorly the movies depicted Rich Plantations being the norm. Seldom was like that.

Neat Experience
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was a neat little experience. There are old and new pieces of farm equipment spread throughout the grounds. There is a short walking trail through a wooded area that has different trees and plants marked. There is also a small, mock-up, old time town that has a church, two room school house, general store, gas station, cotton gin, saw mill, print shop, several small log cabins along with a few other structures. You can walk through and see show life was during a simpler time. There is also a great little museum with several nice pieces and information. We really enjoyed this attraction.

Nice intention but doesn't quite capture you
Apr 2019
We took our kids to this museum on a beautiful day. The weather was perfect for the indoor/outdoor style of this museum. Sadly, it really didn't capture their attention, nor ours. There are no animals here, and the outdoor buildings aren't really brought to life. I'm sure an organised school trip would be fun, but we couldn't do this place justice. Staff were scarce and there were no other customers. The model villages and train sets were fabulous. I would not consider this value for money. The carousel and train were not in operation.

Had a great time
Mar 2019 • Family
Visited during the Celtic Festival. We had a pleasent visit. The exibits are very well put together. If you like heavy machinery, this place is for you. Also enjoyed the model trains, which they have many.

I have taken childcare field trips, attended weddings and wedding receptions, attended graduations and just took time to go to the country store. This is a fun and historic venue.

Step back in time
Nov 2017 • Family
Great museum, lots of history and fun to see. Walking is comfortable and at your own leisure, no rush and can spend plenty of time in each building. Plenty of activities for little ones.. the old country store is always a favorite place to stop in and visit. Make sure you play a game of checkers on the porch and pick up some molasses while there!

This Place is fun!
Oct 2017 • Friends
This is a fun place to check out, though it is pretty hot in the summer time and most of the old building and the animals are outside. They do have some exhibits inside including a model train which I love. In October they have a small pumpkin patch for kids.
