Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village, Tifton

(4.4/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
Explore the farm. Listen to the barnyard sounds. See bacon and ham curing in the smokehouse and preserved vegetables in the canning shed. Experience everyday 19th century-style farm-like activities, from planting and harvesting to cooking, spinning, quilt making, and more. All structures have authentic furnishings of the period.

Friendly staff members share the history as they perform daily activities - whether in farmhouses, fields, sawmill, turpentine still, school house, blacksmith's shop, or the grist mill. Stroll up Main Street to the Feed and Seed store, the print shop and drug store.

  • It's big awesome but in door orlando's SeaWorld tops it
  • Great place rich with history. I loved my visit.
  • Worth a full day stop in Tifton... it's sort of an historic disneyland where they've done an amazing job of pulling together all sorts of historic local buildings to build an 1800's small town, complete with a steam locomotive you ride into town, and historically garbed docents who help your kids do things like grind corn
  • Great place to go if stuck in Tifton. Great for kids.
