Museum of Mississippi History reviews
A very nice museum! I loved the vintage pieces and learned new things about the state. The Civil Rights Museum is excellent also.

Amazing museum! The detail and information is incredible. It is very interactive, and there are so many artifacts to look at. There are great films and sound effects. If you want to go through and really take in all the information, you could spend several hours here. I really enjoyed the common thread of “how we live” and showing different home setups and with detailed dioramas. It was $15 for both this and the Civil rights museum, and I found it well worth the price. Also have a great gift shop with lots of local pottery. You can get national park passport stamps at the front desk.
Since I volunteer at Two MS Museums, I have toured this museum many times but finally took the time to write review. What I love most about it is that it is presented in chronological order and very spacious. There is a very nice area to sit on 2nd floor. They also have several theaters that discuss certain historical events/periods. I love the short films because you get a lot of information over a short period of time. I highly recommend visiting this museum if you love history. The MS Civil Rights Museum is located in the same building. If you want to see both plan on spending at least 4-6 hours. To really take in all that is offered, you may want to visit one museum in the morning and other in afternoon.
