  • 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.
  • Great museum that shows the history of Mississippi. Kids loved exploring the different rooms. Best part is that it's free.
  • Really enjoyed the exhibits, although some were closed. Love to learn about my state's history and its people. Also the war memorial next door is moving and worth the time.
  • The job Mississippi has done to restore this museum and national landmark is incredible. Well worth the visit.
  • It's three stories of Mississippi history and so much that I never knew about our state! Admission is free to get in as well. Took me about a hour to totally walk through. Open 9am to 5pm. Closed mondays though!
