Description: Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees...
Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees that surround it and she would have been delighted that her beautiful folk art and her son's antiques have such a wonderful home. The Museum contains over 50 of Alice Moseley's original paintings and Tim Moseley's lifetime collection of art pottery, majolica, glass and primitive furniture. Playing at all times in the Museum is Alice Moseley on her DVD telling her stories and displaying for our visitors the unique and funny and talented person that she was. The Alice Moseley Museum is a Museum, but it is also an entertainment venue. Come to the Alice Moseley Museum and you will leave with a smile on your face and a love of an old lady whose favorite saying was, "Your reach should always exceed your grasp." She is still reaching out to you. Come see her Museum while you are in Bay St. Louis. Admission free. Museum Curator Geri Bleau will show you around.

The museum does not look impressive from outside.do go in.The paintings capture the memories of an 85 year old retired teacher and her words of wisdom.

This is a quaint little museum, in the very nice visitors center of Bay St. Louis. The details about the artist's life was enough to make us want to check out her work. A great bit of southern Americana. Also it's a good place to buy some folk art to remind you of the visit to the area.

I just went to the Alice Moseley Folk Art Museum and Mardi Gras Museum this morning and the staff couldn’t have been more delightful! I met a very nice lady (sadly I didn’t catch her name) who showed me around the place, turned on videos and answered questions. When you first come into the building you will find the Mardi... More

This sweet little "museum" is upstairs in the L and N Train Depot. It's free and well worth your time. Miss Alice is a self-taught folk artist who didn't start painting until she was 65. What a natural talent! Her work is honest and unassuming and will definitely make you smile. My favorite is one of Alice gardening in front... More

"Miss Mosely's paintings made me smile. I particularly liked, Three Sheets to the Wind". They have a wonderful selection of her prints and cards.

I went to this museum with a group of friends a couple weeks ago. One friend had received an Alice Moseley print as a gift and wanted to visit the museum. I'm so glad we did!! We viewed the video of Miss Alice before going into the museum part. It's a very good video and gives a lot of background... More

We happened up on this place. We really enjoyed our visit here. We had our 7 and 5 year olds with us. They even enjoyed looking around. The lady working here was very friendly. She shared the story of Alice Moseley with us. It was really neat. We even left and looked for the home she lived in. I recommend... More

The docent was a very friendly lady. The displays of some of the everyday items sure can take a person back in time. I am glad that the artworks are on display for the public to see.

This little museum is a sweet stopover on the Gulf when exploring BSL. The collection is quaint and Alice's art is a treat to take in.
