  • We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the museum. The work on display is beautiful and interesting. There is a short film on Anderson's life and his workshop was actually moved to the site and displayed. ...  more »

  • A must see while in Ocean Springs. A local artist inspired by his costal surroundings.
  • This museum, located in beautiful, cozy, downtown Ocean Springs not only features great exhibits highlighting the work of Walter Anderson, they offer a variety of classes, some of which are retreats!
  • The WAMA is an absolutely beautiful place to visit. The history and art of Walter and his brothers are truly pieces of pure imagination and beauty. Make sure to check out the actual boat Walter Anderson used to sail out to the islands!
  • Sweet little museum with great examples of art by a little known but visionary artist. Make sure to see his little room.
  • What an amazing find. The museum offers a rare glimpse into a creative mind. It is open and inviting, well kept and enjoyable. The museum focuses on Walter Anderson but also features a few other local artists of note as well as Shearwater pottery. We went with our toddler who was well behaved enough that we didn't have to yell 'Don't touch that every 10 seconds' but that was on a good day, otherwise I think it is appropriate for ages 5+ if they appreciate the murals and art.
