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.
