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.

Purely by chance we ended up at the Bay St. Louis Visitor's Center. We are glad we made the stop. The folk art of Alice Moseley is entertaining, witty and pretty in its own way. We had never heard of her before nor seen her work but now we understand her popularity among those who appreciate folk art. The museum... More

My friend and I visited this museum on the 2nd floor of the Historic Train Depot. We came away feeling that we had personally known Ms. Alice and had enjoyed a pleasant visit with her. It is very important to watch the video interview so that you can appreciate her story, her humor and her view on life. It makes... More

I'm glad I finay borough the kids to visit the museum. It's located upstairs and no photography allowed. The employee working there (can't remember her name) was so sweet and chatted with us for quite some time. We learned a lot and was surprised that my kids interpreted the art so well. They even got Mrs. Alice's humor when they... More

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
