The MS Museum of Art has some great exhibits and they are good to feature different genres from time to time, which changes things up a bit.

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.
