Homestead for the Holidays at the Mississippi Ag Museum

During the excitement of the winter holiday season, the Mississippi Ag Museum will host its Homestead for the Holidays event. Held today (12/12) and Friday (12/13), the Ag Museum will be open from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for this joy filled holiday event.

Admission will be $6 for adults and $4 for children, ages 3-18. Also, the Museum will be accepting canned food donations at the door to benefit the Mississippi Food Network. Guests making a donation will receive half off their admission price.

Visitors can enjoy a sampler breakfast for supper, story time with Mrs. Claus, and get a picture made with Santa and Rudolph. In addition, Museum guests will experience Christmas during the early 1920s by strolling through Small Town, attending various demonstrations, and visiting the Fortenberry-Parkman Farmstead.

Carousel and train rides will be available as well as hands-on historic crafts and live music throughout the grounds. The General Store will be open for visitors to browse the unique Mississippi made products that make great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers, all while enjoying their choice of an old-fashioned glass bottle drink and snack. Adults and children alike will also have the opportunity to write a letter to Santa on one of the Museum’s limited-edition postcards, printed in the Small Town Print Shop.

The Mississippi Ag Museum’s Homestead for the Holidays offers a wonderful time of community and coming together to enjoy the adventure of an old-fashioned holiday celebration. This event is sponsored in part by the Mississippi Egg Marketing Board, the Mississippi Beef Council, Cal-Maine Foods Inc., the Dairy Alliance, Emerson Farms and Visit Jackson.
