  • The museum shares space with the Civil Rights Museum. Both museums are excellent and each museum is worth 1-2 hours of time. As history museums go this one is updated and full of well presented...

  • Museum of Mississippi History was by far our favorite of all the places we visited in Jackson. It is located in the same building as the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum so you can see both in the same stop. The building also has a nice casual restaurant that was very reasonable. If you plan to see both you can easily spend 5 or 6 hours hers.
  • Every American, especially non-Southerners, should experience this museum. I visited this exceptional museum about 3 years ago and I still hold it as one of the best museums I've ever visited. The Museum of Mississippi History delivers everything I always hope a museum visit will, but rarely does. It explores with clear eyes, and a thoughtful heart, the complex, messy human history of the region – how it impacts our present, and how we can use lessons from our past to shape a better future with actions in our present. I laughed, cried, and definitely left with a deeper, changed view of Mississippi, the South, and our American history. Clear an afternoon and go enjoy! Be ready to have interesting conversations with yourself and with the people you go with.
