Boring, educational stop. Probably a good place to take a local school field trip at the end of school. We were not interested in Missisisippi forestry or agriculture. Besides, the place closed before the tour arrived. They allowed us to drive in and turn around. We did not even get out.

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!

If you like history you will love this place, I think this is the best preserved place of how people lived in those days and it is all real and not a look alike people were nice and place was clean. This place is wort it all, I will go again

We've been visiting this museum for years. I love the train exhibits they've added through the years. This is a gem. A hidden treasure. Make a point of going because you won't be disappointed. If you plan it right, there are festivals/events at certain times of the year.

The displays are the actual items, not reproductions. Tells the history of the commerce in the state through farming and the lumber business.

An interesting visit to Mississippi's past. The General Store carried a lot of state products. The doctors office was interesting, a real salute to how far the medical community has come. I highly recommend this museum.

I've been visiting this place since I was a little girl and it is always neat. The grounds are well kept and the staff is friendly. It's also a good place to host events.

This place is a nice walk back in time and a great way to learn about some Mississippi history! Be sure to check out the vast arrowhead collection during the tour of the grounds. Great place for a student field trip!
