  • Fantastic tour, well presented with so much history in such a small place
  • Personal tour, very interesting
  • I was so pleasantly surprised to see such a collection of literature, artifacts that I grew up with, such as the metal iron, iron stove and heater, churn and other items in this large building. Those who founded and those in charge have done an outstanding job in making history available. To my surprise, I saw my last name spelled the way we in Louisiana spell it for the first time. This has inspired me to do further research as to the origin of my ancestors.
  • Great place to stop and learn a little about African American history. We were lucky and were the only ones there so had a private tour.
  • This was my third time visiting Natchez and I had never visited this museum. This was an absolute treat. My husband is from Natchez and it was his first time visiting. If you can get Darryl White to give a guided tour, you are in for a treat. This guy knows Natchez history backwards and forwards. My kids also enjoyed it,.

Where to stay in Natchez

Check out the downtown area by the river for the biggest variety of accommodations in Natchez. The town has some very interesting properties to choose from, including 19th-century plantation houses, converted now into guesthouses with spectacular dining rooms and lush grounds. Down by the water, you'll find some grand old hotels, with extras like onsite restaurants and casinos. If you're on a budget, check out the motels located roadside to the east and south of the city center.
