We spent a morning here with 8 and 10 year old kids. Lots of fun and they easily could have stayed longer. I'd say 10 year olds are close to aging out though.

The Mississippi Children's Museum offers great insight into the State of Mississippi while offering children educational opportunities that are fun! Adjacent to LeFleur's Bluff Park, the is a great summer afternoon destination for those with young kinds passing through Jackson.

We have taken the grands there several times and it's always a hit. Lots of hands on activities and interactive exhibits. Timing is crucial as it can get crowded but even then it's not too bad.

My wife and I went to a charity benefit dinner here and had a blast! We don't have kids yet but when we do I see us coming here all the time. The marketing director for the museum, Kellye McMillan is the best in the state! She is so creative and is always coming up with new ways to promote... More

I was blown away at how nice and interactive this museum. I have visited 2 others in different states in the last year and Mississippi has the best! There was things that would interest any age child. You can use a arm band and go in and out and there is nice places to have a picnic.

We visited this place with friends (3 moms, 4 kids from 2 y.o to 7 y.o) and we, including the moms, had a great time! We spent about 4 hours there but couldn't really cover all the exhibitions. There were just so many! We felt like we could easily spend the whole day there. The layout and colors of the... More

We had to travel to Jackson for a wedding and had a few hours of "down time" and was told about this amazing museum. As a kindergarten teacher and mommy, I loved all the different organzied events and play areas. We got to go the day they were celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday. They had so many cute extra activities, and... More

Hi Melissa, We're so glad you were able to visit with the Mississippi Children's Museum during your "down time" in Jackson. The Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration is our annual MCM event to promote literacy and imagination throughout our community. You all picked a great and busy day to come visit. We will pass on your gratitude to Cynthia and hopefully... More
