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

I cannot say how much I love bringing my child to the museum. I have been bringing him since he was 16 months old and now he is 3 1/2. There is always something for every age and I can see us exploring for years to come. The staff is nothing but kind and helpful and make everyone feel so... More

Museum should be a fun experience but due to the condition of the play costumes and hats my girls got lice after playing with them

We don't get to come to the Children's Museum often, but spend quite a few hours when we can. There is so much for the kids to explore from how to pump gasoline in the car to how construction equipment works to art classes and playing instruments. It's a wonderful way to have fun and watch the kids learn! For... More
