Old Capitol Museum Reviews
The Old Capitol is a beautiful Greek revival architecture building. Worth the visit although the displays are a little weak. It’s free so a good option if in Jackson. more »
I am not a big history buff, but my husband is. With saying that we both really liked visiting the museum! The layout was very well thought out and easy to maneuver. The architecture is breath taking.... more »
We have had the pleasure of making several visits to the Old Capitol Museum since its renovation. The Old Capitol has undergone an extensive renovation, post Hurricane Katrina, and if you have not visited recently it is surely a must see in Jackson. Step back in history and enjoy one of the finest museums in Jackson. Much history to see, enjoyable and fast moving enough even for younger children. If you only have a few stops that you can make and this is one of your options, we highly recommend a visit.
Beautifully restored with helpful docents and plenty of exhibits. Definitely worth carving an hour or two out of your day to explore Mississippi history.
