Attended a reunion at this location. It was spacious and adequate for what we required. The outdoor area was good for the kids and games and we all enjoyed walking thru the various museums.

This was an interesting enough place with lots to see. Sad to hear that a fire claimed three of its buildings including the children's barn in 2014 and they haven't been rebuilt. I'm glad to hear they are planning on it though. It was well worth the money to visit this museum.

You almost feel like you've stepped into another time at this museum. The buildings are era specific, and the staff is beyond knowledgeable.

Strolling among structures that illustrate Mississippi's agricultural history is a pleasant way to spend a few hours while gaining historical insights. The museum is small enough to cover comfortably and includes a short nature trail and an interesting general store.

Go in the morning! or it will be sweltering in the heat of Mississippi. Lots of old buildings, farming equipment, and an indoor exhibit on agriculture, aviation, and trains. My favorite exhibit was the donated collection in a building to itself in the back of the property. Great time and well loved.

A must see for those who like to see old things such as farming, logging and days of the old. We really enjoyed the museum. Considerable walking to see everything. The old timey doctors office was really cool.

We attended an event which had tractor races (slowest one to be the winner!) The darling old town was like it was 100 or so years ago. Pleasant employees helped you find your way around. Enjoyed the trip back in time.

Good place to spend a few hours with your 3 year old grandson. The train exhibit is excellent. The train ride is really not a train but a tram that looks similar to a train that runs around the area. Costs a $1.00 for about a 5 minute ride. Visit the General Store and the Old Church. It is worth... More

Being born and raised on a farm, I greatly enjoyed every aspect of this museum. From the machinery to the animals, it was wonderful. Makes you wonder how our great, great grandparents survived much less raise a house full of children. Very educational as well as most interesting.
