  • This museum is well worth a visit. It is absolutely crammed with items of interest I'm not going to say much more and just let the pictures do the talking. This is a must see. Give it a try.  more »
  • It took me about an hour to see everything at this museum. It cost $5 to get in. Some interesting items and exhibits. Grant's chair was interesting. The gift shop sells authentic civil war items.  more »

  • Fantastic Civil War display with a great deal of Vicksburg history. Several other rooms in the old courthouse museum filled with interesting history. Nice gift shop. I purchased a small display box filled with civil war metal objects. The staff took the time to give me a great description of each item. Highly recommend a visit! As a student of history, I can tell you that every generation looks at the past through it's own Kaleidoscope. It's important to preserve all history for future generations. Thank you to the Old Court House Museum for your commitment to this effort!
  • Truly a wonderful museum! The staff were friendly and helpful, and the amount of history held in the courthouse is incredible. Admission is $5.00 for adults, and well-worth it. The gift shop was also reasonably priced, containing a hefty amount of Civil War artifacts. I would highly recommend stopping here for anyone who enjoys history.
  • Wonderful historical place that really walks you through our southern history! Highly recommend
  • Lots of collected artifacts, but offensive exhibits. For example, this quote (reportedly from one of Jefferson Davis' former slaves): "Every colored man he ever owned loved him", and "There was a special relationship between Jefferson Davis and his slaves. He was not only their master, but also their friend." Museum evidently is maintained by descendants, in defense of their ancestors.
  • A truly fascinating museum.
