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. « less

My husband and I both commented that it was a more enjoyable experience than we were expecting. We visited with our children, and they were all well behaved because there were so many great things to see. Loved the video that played throughout.

As a high school teacher of Mississippi Studies, I confess to never being aware of Alice Moseley or her eye catching folk art until my first visit to her museum. It opened a new awareness on my part to an obviously very important artist's catalog of work. Geri, the curator, was the essence of hostess, welcomer and museum guide. She... More

A very cool little museum, I loved taking my kids and you can buy a little something to take home with you for a great price. I will go back and take friends and family that come to visit us in Bay St Louis.

Wonderful museum above the train depot. Alice Moseley's art was beautiful and unique. Loved hearing all of the interesting stories about each painting. Can't believe that she didn't start painting until she was 65 years old! After hearing several stories about her it was evident that she must have been quite a character and that she was well loved!

An unexpectedly long stop at the Bay Saint Louis welcome centre came about because of this art museum upstairs. We'd never heard of Alice Mosely but found her art unique and endearing. When the lady in the mueum walked us round to each painting and helped explain the meaning and stories behind them, it was a real immersion into her... More

It is very heart warming to receive such a wonderful review in what I believe was the first week of our operation at the depot. My mom was a smart,funny and creative lady and, as she told a group of us before her death," In my Museum,I WILL BE TELLING MY STORIES AND MAKING PEOPLE LAUGH LONG AFTER YOU ARE... More

First, the museum has moved out of the blue house and into the historic L & N train depot in Bay Saint Louis. Lots of beautiful art, and the docent was wonderful - she was able to relate her actual experiences with Moseley. Moseley was obviously loved in this town. A must see if you're in the area!

When Alice Moseley moved to Bay St. Louis in 1989, she was an immediate hit and was a town and visitor favorite up until her death in 1994. When we first opened the Museum in her house after Katrina, many local people did not want to visit because it made them sad to be in Miss Alice's s house without... More

I first visited Bay St Louis in October and fell in love with it. This museum seems to be the hub of the entire town as well as the art community. The house and galleries were shown by Martha, the new director, who is also an art historian. Her knowledge of this artist and her paintings was amazing and her... More

We did a little research before our trip to BSL and thought this would be a fun stop before heading out of town and we ended up spending a good chunk of our day at the museum. The house is blue and just like her (Alice's) paintings, spunky, cute and inviting. After ringing the school bell to announce your presence,... More

I had the great pleasure of meeting Mrs. Moseley on a trip to Bay St. Louis in 2001 for cruising the coast. Not only was she a delightful person to meet, her paintings are full of personality. We stumbled upon her by accident really and what a hidden treat she was. I was saddened to hear of her passing. At... More
