Great place to take children! A lot of fun and entertainment for a couple of hours for children. A great space for birthday parties & offers a PNO every now and then. A few of the exhibits are even informative for adults.

The museum is laid out very well, clean, and fun for the kids! It is a little on the expensive side though, in my opinion, especially at $10 each for parents. Kids enjoyed it, but won't want to go back for another year or two.

This place is soooo much fun for kids and adults alike. Makes you engage your imagination while learning all about the wonderful, unique things Mississippi has to offer. They have just opened the new gardens and there is even a slash pad out front. We are members and go as much as we can - my children even attend their... More

They had everything here! From human-sized doll to all kind of toys for your kid. My son absolutely loved the farmers' market here. Moreover, it's a fantastic place for hosting birthday parties.

My daughter, age 7, had just as much fun the second time as she did the first time! She loves crawling through the tunnels & playing in the life size doll house!!!

My son and I always enjoy visiting the Children's Museum. It is a great place for kids to explore, play and learn. There is so much to do, really more than you can do in one visit. My son never wants to move to another section, but when he does he doesn't want to leave that spot. This is defiantly... More

I have 2 children. They've been to the MS Children's Museum in Jackson at least 2 dozen times, and they still ask to go back. There is so much to do, and see for kids that you can easily spend 3 hours here without skipping a beat. They just added a new outdoor area that we quite enjoyed the last... More
