When my wife suggested this I thought it would be as much fun as watching grass grow. I was wrong. The main building is outstanding, I could have spent hours there reading all the placards on the displays. There are a number of outlying buildings...More

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

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...More

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.
