Mississippi 4-H Museum

The Mississippi 4-H Museum at night illuminated with lights.

The Mississippi 4-H Museum is the first free standing 4-H museum in the country. The Museum includes interactive exhibits, collections, and videos that tell the story of Mississippi 4-H. It is located on the campus of the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum,1150 Lakeland Dr., Jackson, MS. 

Since the early 1900s, 4-H has been an important part of the lives of many Mississippians. A timeline video shows the progress and highlights of over 100 years of Mississippi 4-H. Other collections include clothing, trophies, and record books. 

The School of Forest Products helped design and construct the forestry project exhibit that includes a 7 foot talking tree, a video, a magnifying wood table, and a wall mounted display of the beautiful woods of Mississippi.  

Visitors can also meet Cloverbelle the cow! In this exhibit, visitors get to experience milking a life-size cow. There is also a short video about the importance of dairy. 

Sandy Havard is the on-sight extension agent to maintain exhibits and implement educational activities.
