I just spent such an enjoyable couple of hours at this little gem of a Museum. Don't let your time on the Mississippi Gulf Coast pass without visiting. There's a lot of joy in Ms. Alice's little paintings!

This is a small place upstairs from the Historic Depot. It's very nice. They have many pieces of art and antiques. We enjoyed it and we are not usually into this sort of thing.
