Great place to wander around and see old tractors, buildings, and more. The Fitzgerald collection (medium sized building on the right) was full of arrow heads and great antiques. One of the best buildings in the whole complex. They had a cotton gin that is said to be the oldest operating cotton gin in the country. Plus, they have a general store. Drinks were expensive but the guy at the counter was really nice and made sure to tell us about some of the interesting buildings that others typically miss. Overall a great place to visit
There are a lot of nice things about this museum. There are the nice model train tracks. There are the plethora of equipment from vehicles to simple tools, many with nice details. Dates would be a nice bonus with some of the life sized dioramas. Outside there is a functioning general store. There are many recreated buildings from mule sheds to barns and mills. Overall for the admission fee it is well worth the price for the whole family.
