I took a student group to the museum and was amazed at the talent in the Mississippi Story room. The traveling exhibits that come occasionally are also excellent!

The museum is free and it has a relatively small collection. However, the quality of the collection is very good. The garden is also very attractive. A great place to visit if you are in Jackson. We didn't eat at the cafe, but I can imagine it is a great place to get lunch and enjoy it in the beautiful... More

There is so much to do here. There is something for every age, toddler up to teen. Create art, experiment with science, live life underground like a groundhog, pretend to be a car mechanic, a builder or a fisherman.

The Mississippi Museum of Art has, in addition to displaying world class art exhibits and presenting various events, hosts local artists as they teach, demonstrate and mentor attendees. This small museum is an excellent visitation spot for tourists to Jackson, Mississippi.
