This place is a great place if you want to learn about what all Mississippi does for agriculture. There is also a MS sports hall of fame museum next door.

We were disappointed. We were on a coach trip to see this museum. We stopped on the grounds. Reservations, but we couldn't get in. We walked around the site.

This museum covers a variety of agriculture topics. Many exhibits have great explanations so visitors can easily become informed. Fun detailed exhibits include many running toy trains.

This is a authentic replica of what life would have been like 100 years ago in Mississippi. Or anywhere in agricultural America almost. No electricity and families living off the land with farming being the chief way of making a living. The coolest part about...More
