  • So much history packed into just 200 years. Great staff, well informed, happy to help Brits understand the way the Capitol worked and the set up of US politics, state and federal.

  • Classic example a Greek Revival state house designed by William Nichols in 1836 and restored by Robert Parker Adams in 2009. We do, however, miss the exhibits from the 1980s/90s designed by Cavett Taff... noted exhibition designer and historian.
  • Great free self guided tour of the old Capitol and the history of Mississippi.
