  • We were so surprised by how many exhibits are available at this site! We roamed over this place for over 2 hours and I still felt rushed (that's what happens when you have little kids). The central mu...  more »

  • Great family place, something for everyone. See how things were done in years past. Take a walk in old town and stop at the store and have a cool drink. This is a wonderful place for the kids.
  • Of all the things you can see in the area, no doubt your three year old will love the train sets at this location the best. Great outdoor installation with a running vintage cotton gin and a neat store. Uncle story is a really nice idea to get little ones interested in reading
  • It was really cool looking at all the old time things and being able to experience a little of the old time life
  • This museum is worth a visit, especially if your with the kids! It has a very interesting intro and explanation of the tools, lifestyles, evolutions of the American Ag & Forestry industry that existed in Mississippi and throughout the south. It has a large... very large, functioning model train collection that has been built to reflect the era of the booming agricultural and forestry industry. That alone will have you and your kids intrigued following the whole model throughout the interior of the main museum building. Interestingly enough the museum has built a full size village next to the museum that one can walk through and actually interact with some of the town buildings such as the "general store" that you can actually walk into and buy items that reflect pieces of that era!
  • The service was great and fast and the food was great and so are the prices
