We stopped in with only one thing we wanted to see and that was the agricultural aviation museum. It's just one small part of the entire place and we had only a few minutes to check it out but it was worth it. They had 3 or 4 cropduster planes on display along with quite a few pictures and a display of all the "Hall of Famers." My boyfriend, with whom I was traveling, loved this place and I'm sure would recommend it to any ag pilot/cropdusting enthusiast that may be passing through Jackson and wanted to kill a few minutes.

Ultimately though, I think the entire place would be beneficial to any one who wants to know more about agriculture and it's history.

This is a very interesting place to visit to see how things were done in the past. Lots of info and they have an awesome train display. If you go hristmas, expect great decorations.

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.

My Dutch husband works for the Department of Argiculture in the Netherlands so this was right up his alley, we had a great time walking around and looking at things, I especially loved the hanging quilts. I wish the general store offered more things..but all in all we loved the place...
