Museum of Mississippi History was by far our favorite of all the places we visited in Jackson. It is located in the same building as the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum so you can see both in the same stop. The building also has a nice casual restaurant that was very reasonable. If you plan to see both you can easily spend 5 or 6 hours here.

The museum shares space with the Civil Rights Museum. Both museums are excellent and each museum is worth 1-2 hours of time. As history museums go this one is updated and full of well presented displays and lots of video. You can bring families here but the displays presented are more for an adult viewer than a child viewer. I wanted to get an overview of Mississippi history that did not white wash the dark side of the states history. This museum was very even handed. It presented a chronological history of the state that highlighted the states accomplishments but also fully told the history of the native Americans and enslaved persons on whose backs much of that success came. Very informative and well done. Good job Mississippi.

I love history but found this a depressing place as it focuses on racism. I felt marginalized by the Introductory Video that described one group oppressing all other groups. It should be introducing the first area, Indian Artifacts. I suggested a flyover of Emerald Mound, the second largest Indian Mound in North America, but they didn't even respond to my letter.

The WWII section is so tiny. The Civil War area is more concerned with placing blame than anything else. I expected Klan robes the Civil Rights side, but in the middle of the History side is overkill. The Music section features Ike Turner who reportedly abused his wife Tina, breaking her jaw. He has both guitar and suit of clothes on display. Neither for BB King or Elvis.

There is small church-like room, but our Christian heritage is largely ignored. We have some of the most beautiful and historic homes in the nation, but these are overlooked. The Civil War area ignores the misery of the common people who were burned out for no reason - their homes, towns, farms, everything, leaving the state in economic distress for generations. Is it fair to blame our state for slavery when the U.S. Congress is who approved it and had to end it? The North had the votes to end it anytime. What took them so long? So much wasted space and missed opportunities here.

Went on Sunday and did not get to all the exhibits. Was a great history lesson. Learned about the Indians first here and how the white men came.

Mississippi has come a long way since the Civil War and the turbulent 1960s and it's all available for one and all to see at the Museum of Mississippi History in Jackson, Mississippi. Located at 222 North Street, combined with the equally impressive Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, it covers the history of the state as far back as 13,000 BC. Exhibits cover everything from Hernando De Soto to 19th century slavery to the Cotton Kingdom to the Civil War to Reconstruction to the Great Depression to Prohibition to the Civil Rights Movement to Hurricane Katrina. On the cutesy side, see the crown that Mary Ann Mobley wore when she won the Miss America pageant in 1958. But start with the First Peoples exhibit, which dates to 13,000 BC and traces life in Mississippi to 1518, with stories of Choctaw and Chickasaw people and artifacts such as a 500-year-old dugout canoe, weapons, pottery, tools and other archaeological discoveries. Other must-see exhibits are Mississippi Distilled, popping the cork on Prohibition, with stories of piety and politics in the "wettest dry state," where Prohibition began in 1908, 12 years before it became a national law; Cultural Crossroads 1519-1798, documenting Native Americans who first inhabited the state and Hernando De Soto and other European explorers who came later; Joining the United States 1799-1832, documenting the arrival of African-Americans, statehood for Mississippi, examining the Bowie knife, dueling pistols and other weapons that determined frontier justice and how federal laws forced Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations to leave their ancestral homelands; Cotton Kingdom 1833-1865, featuring the earliest photographs taken in Mississippi and comparing the lives of an enslaved family, yeoman farmers and wealthy planters, noting that by 1984 there were more slaves than whites in Mississippi; The World Remade 1866-1902, Reconstruction in Mississippi, the story of a Mississippi businessman who first bottled Coca-Cola and a collection of tools used by African-American blacksmiths; Promise and Peril 1903-1927, witness the struggles of suffragettes Nellie Nugent Somerville and Belle Kearney in their quest for equal rights, see a lamp used during the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and explore changes and challenges that Mississippi faced at the turn of the century; Bridging Hardship 1928-1945, documents how the Great Depression crippled Mississippi, how FDR's New Deal put Mississippi back to work and displays a baseball glove owned by Willie Mitchell, a Mississippi native who once struck out Babe Ruth; and Forging Ahead, 1946 to present, allows visitors to survey damage caused by Hurricane Katrina and see how the struggle for civil rights raged in courtrooms, how Mississippi moved forward in industry, technology and immigration, how a diverse array of activists, artisans, entrepreneurs, politicians and everyday citizens contributed to the Mississippi story. For outsiders, it's a very fascinating journey through the history of a state that has undergone dramatic changes.

One could spend several hours here, but even a short time is valuable. The exhibits spanned many years and everything from the arts to sports to history. My favorites are those that point to everyday life, not just the famous. I am sorry I didn't make it to the Civil Rights Museum, will do that another day.

We stopped by the Museum on free Museum Day - it wasn't planned that way but that is how it played out. It is a nice museum and I like the way it is laid out in a timeline. It is connected to the Civil Rights Museum as well. They have a very nice gift shop as well with pottery and gifts made by

The museum staff is awesome, they are friendly and very informative. I enjoyed the exhibit and the layout of the museum. It was a walk through Mississippi History very interesting. Plan to stay at least 2 hours to sufficiently tour the museum. The Civil Right museum in located in the same building I had toured it before. If you decide to tour both museums plan for 4 hours at a minimum.
