  • 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.  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.
