Fun for all. Worth each penny. My family and I all enjoyed our time visiting the museum. I'd inquire about military discounts, each time we went it was FREE until school started and they had my kids favorites exhibits: the body, skeleton, Did the Science Kid, just super fun! !

New to Jackson? Want to drive in a little from the outside? This is definitely the best kids' educationally fun attraction in Mississippi! It is full of various hands-on activities, food for purchase, and even art that you can take home! Recommended for toddler up to about 12 years old in fun level.

We were traveling west for the Alabama game (Roll Tide!) and were looking for fun things to do. We stopped here and the kids didn't want to leave. Our 6 year old and 4 year old each had plenty to play with. They had the chance to explore so many different things (the digestive system, construction, energy, music, theater) and... More

While I realize it's difficult to maintain a facility which is visited by thousands of children on an annual basis, it's because it is for children that I believe all of the exhibits should be kept in working order. Several of the activities on the water table were not operating as they should. In the grand scheme, it did not... More

Dear Denise B, We thank you for your visit to MCM and voicing your concern about your experience.
