    This museum is like walking thru a small town…the one from little house on the prairie. There is also a museum where you purchase tickets. The museum proper would be ok for people with mobility issues. The paths between the buildings is crushed rock so I’m guessing wheel chairs might be an issue. Also it’s self guided. We just kinda wandered around the property and had a blast. A pleasant surprise! I think we might return when when start studying early American history.

    Much to see Inside and Out!
    I especially like the trains (there is a button to push to start them if not moving) and Indian Artifacts (separate building). You can pick up a snack in the Old Country Store. International Harvester tested the original cotton picker right here in Mississippi!

    Nice overview of Mississippi's development
    Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum – We enjoyed this museum a lot. About 2/3 outside exhibits and 1/3 inside. We spent just over 3 hours here. Very inexpensive costing, I think our senior tickets were $5.

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.

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.

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). They have tons of interactive stuff, plenty of room for kids to run off their energy and lots of history along the way. This is the perfect place to stop on a road trip through Mississippi. Don't miss out!

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 display.
This is a must to see in Jackson and we spent over 2 hours visiting.

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.

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!

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 trains. Around the grounds are still more vintage cars and farm equipment. There are many buildings included in the museum. One is a gas station dating back to the pre WWII days as well as a church, general store, and doctor's office. There's even a drilling rig and sawmill. The building housing The Fitzgerald Collection has many items inside. Included are thousands or arrowheads as well as firearms and pharmacy equipment. This museum has something for everybody and one can easily spend several hours here like we did.

This was a great place to spend the day for our whole family. There is a full indoor museum with exhibits about Mississippi's agricultural history, including full interactive train displays. Outdoors is a town including general store, old schoolhouse, church, cotton gin, service station, doctor's office, and an old home with outbuildings. You can go inside all of the displays and the general store sells snacks & novelties. There are also animals there that you can see up close, great for the kids. Lots of fun and helps spark dialogue about how life was "back in the day". We all enjoyed it and all of the employees and staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend.

We went to this through Diamond tours, was great, took our time and viewed the museum and walked the grounds. Took the wagon ride. It was really nice and the staff was so informative. Good choice for Diamond Tours. There were 52 people on our bus. This was the only stop in Jackson besides the hotel. We stoped on the way back from New Orleans.

This facility has an indoor museum and an outside living history museum. Both of which are well equipped and interesting.
Don't be deterred if the main gate is closed as there is a side entrance with car park.
