Mississippi 4-H Museum
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.

Children notice everything, and they remember. When children watch a man use his personal resources and take extra time just for them, when they listen to his words of encouragement through disappointments and triumphs, and when they watch him demonstrate boundless patience whatever the circumstance, those children remember.
