We went out of our way to stop here, hoping to find maybe some antiques or hand made items from locals. They had very little 'stock' and although a young gal who worked there was friendly enough, there wasn't really anything at all that got our attention. Lots of pottery that looks like everyone else's pottery, a few quits, some... More

Google said they opened up at 9 on Sundays. We drove 20 minutes to try to see them early when they opened at 9. They were closed. The sign at the road even said open daily from 9-5. What a complete disappointment. Guess we will be leaving Jackson without seeing this attraction. And I still need to buy gifts!!

I had no idea this place even existed! We stumbled upon it while motorcycling along the Natchez Trace Parkway. The attendants were warm, inviting, informative and helpful. There is a beautiful display of artistic items made mostly by local artists, info on the artists and various items available for purchase. I was pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem in Mississippi!

The lovely modern building hosts a wonderful gallery that sells a wide variety of art. The items range from textiles to wood creations and a wide variety of pottery. A great place to find that special gift.

First of all, a warning: if your Garmin takes you to the site of the sports and agricultural museums, you are at the old location of a few years ago. I turned to my iPhone and successfully found the Center, about 7-8 miles away. Next, at the Center I was pleasantly greeted. There are brochures for visitors of the area,... More

This place took me completely by surprise - not what I was expecting in Jackson. Very nice, high quality exhibits. I had hoped for more variety - but you can't have everything. Full of ideas for other crafters.

A magnificent...and unexpected...building because of its splendid architecture. I can see why it was named one of the Ten Places to Shop in USAToday. If you enjoy the beauty and integrity of individual crafts, then this is your place. Nicely arranged and affordable display of all manner of crafts. We had the good fortune of meeting a gentleman who is... More

The Mississippi Crafts Center is located across the street from the Ross Barnett Reservoir and is a lovely setting for a contemporary building full of handcrafted products. The Guild, whose work is in the building, has been operating, since 1973. They have a changing monthly exhibit by an individual craftsman and, often, an artisan is demonstrating. The blacksmith is fun... More
