Visitors also get to see cotton bales, plows, fertilizers, planters, cultivators, a blacksmith shop, a old fashioned kitchen and store and more. If you have young boys into tractors and agriculture (or old boys) this is a great place to bring them. With all the antique farming equipment, it's a really cool place for farm fans.
The exhibits are intended to interpret life on a cotton farm, from the farmers daily chores to the actual process of farming cotton.
Another history museum very nearby is the Toltec Mounds State Park, also in Scott.
Amenities & Events:
Every year in July, the Plantation Agriculture Museum celebrates its Homespun Day. Artisans from around the state are invited to teach historic crafts, mostly involving fabrics. The public is invited to watch as these artisans "spin, weave, and loom cotton into fabric." Many offer hands-on demonstrations. Other crafts like quilting and old fashioned toys are also featured.
The museum has an antique tractor show that showcases pre-1960’s tractors and their engines. It's an outdoor show and occurs annually.
Admission and Tour Fees:
There is a discounted rate if you visit Toltec Mounds State Park and Plantation Agriculture Museum on the same day.
