While visiting relations in Jackson we visited this museum on a pumpkin day, not sure of the official name. The admission included a hay ride & a pumpkin. Our grandchildren had a great time. We also enjoyed the exhibits with the children being entranced by the elaborate train layout. We hope to return as it is hard to see everything... More

We visited during the Celtic Festival, which ended up being worse than on a day with no special events. The displays in the main building were very interesting, including the history of different types of saw mills, crop dusting planes, and a huge model railroad.

The Mississippi Ag museum was a nice exhibit of Mississippi's agricultural past. They had a nice collection of old tractors, cars, and railroad paraphanelia, plus a great collection of farm tools and machines used in agriculture anywhere from the late 1800's through present day. The exhibits are interactive with lots of buttons to push to engage visitors. Outside the main... More

A great place to spend the day. A educational and fun experience. A wide range of things to learn about and an overall great experience. Everything from an old county store to a functional sawmill to crop dusters and everything in between. A true Mississippi Treasure.

We went to the museum because our family reunion was being held there. We had no expectations, but what a great surprise! This museum is a gem! My 8 year old loved the intricate model trains that went through the areas of Mississippi. The amazing array of antique farm equipment certainly gave us an appreciation for our modern conveniences. We... More

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.
