Formerly known as the Agrirama, the Georgia Museum of Agriculture has been given a renewed sense of purpose by the folks at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC). If you’ve never been, or if you just haven’t been in a while, please stop by when you’re in Tifton. It’s definitely time well spent.

If you love the story of life in the rural South as much as I do, you’ll love the Georgia Museum of Agriculture. Professionals and volunteers at this venerable living history museum do a wonderful job of interpreting the era so fundamental to the development of South Georgia as we know it today. Just make sure you visit their website for rates and schedules. The train generally runs on weekends and is always a favorite with young visitors, and the young at heart.
