My husband and I were anxious to tour the village. We traveled over an hour to reach this attraction from where we stayed. Because we did not know that there was no provision for shade for pets, we took our dog with us. There were no shade trees and no provision for keeping one out of the hot sun. Needless... More

Very fine museum of an agricultural community in the late 1800s early 1900s. These are authentic buildings, houses, grist mill, etc. No reproductions. One of only two true steam engines still running in Georgia. Special activity days are exceptional. Very educational.

This is a great place to go to learn about our Southern History and how our grandparents lived back in the day. Friendly and informative staff with some much to offer. You should definitely add this to your must see list in South West GA!

The volunteers/employees were knowledgable. The exhibits were small but accessible. They appealed to both the young and the old. The train was fun to ride. The Peanut Museum had been dismantled. But what we saw looked like it could be much improved. It seems a shame that the museum does not enter a partnership with some of large peanut companies... More

That's my best advice. I'm writing this review as mainly suggestions for the museum to followup on and possibly implement. I went to the museum on a day with 1200 kids in attendance. The kids were brats, to put it lightly. I blame this on their parents and the chaperones that were worthless. My disabled friend, when she tried to... More

First we went to the General Store where we asked for direction in buying sandwiches for lunch and he directed us to the drug store #21 on the map in the historic village. We thanked him and drove to the parking lot for the village. There is a ramp at the entrance however it was blocked by tables and chairs... More

A visit to this museum is like stepping back in time and one feels like walking in the 19th century. With so many authentic crafts, housed in the original buildings that are carefully restored, the hands-on demonstrations of milling, sawing, barrel making and even lettertype printing makes this the perfect spot for children and families. The outdoor walkable museum also... More

On arrival at 2:30 pm we were informed that the museum would be closing in 20 minutes. According to the staff, the concession selling t-shirts and souvenirs was... More

The group I came with (my parents and my kids) all had a great time at this museum. The best part is that you have the indoor and the outdoor experience which makes it not boring at all. You start off at the country store where you buy tickets. The person selling the tickets gave us tons of information and... More
