It is full of information and old and antique implements used in the harvesting and processing of cotton. I also enjoyed seeing the world's largest boll weevil in contrast to a real one in a jar. The displays are beautifully designed.

At least an hour after the lecture. You can spend as long as you like there. And the Veteran's museum is connected to it. I would allow 2 hours if you like history.
