We had a great time looking at the different displays of agriculture and animals, climbing the “tree” to the second floor. It was awesome discovering the mummified dog, playing outside on the shady playground, digging for dinosaurs in the sandbox, and seeing all of the huge living and nonliving trees. Would be a great place for toddler groups, homeschool groups, social clubs, business lunches, school field trips, and church groups or book clubs.

Simply the best! Highly recommend a visit to see Stuckey!

I took my granddaughter to Southern Forest World and we both loved it.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that they have information and things to see for all ages rather than childish and boring for the parents or too much interesting adult information that the kids get fidgety and want to go.
It’s an interesting place to visit, and not what I expected, and would recommend it to anyone.

We “accidentally” found southern forest world on valentine’a day. Our plan was to leave the miss swampfest pageant my daughter was in and drive on to Florida, until we spotted the train. Lol. We turned around and had the best unexpected adventure of the day! This is a great place to bring the kids! It’s full of information and eye catching exhibits! There’s an outside playground, we loved the spider web! there’s an indoor tree with a spiral staircase inside and a gift shop! So many wonderful exhibits and the manager was so sweet! I wish we could have made it back this weekend for the Arbor Day celebration, I know it will be a blast for everyone!
