  • A fantastic experience! Really gives you a feel for the political goings on of a bygone era. Very friendly staff, patrolled by an equally friendly Capitol Police Force. Very much worth a visit.
  • It is a great museum on Mississippi history. It is located near the new civil rights museum so that is a bonus as well.
  • A good stop to get acquainted with Mississippi. This great, heavy stone, intricate, architecture is astounding! It's a shame not to see this kind of quality work anymore. It's an easy walk through museum. Most of it is "interactive", meaning its equipped with sound speakers and some videos that tell you summaries of the history that revolved around and/or associated with the state capitol.
  • Very informational and offered a great lesson on Mississippi's history.
  • Beautiful building! Nice museum secretary that told us what what to do to see Jackson. Really helpful!
