found the exhibits fascination - well worth a visit . There is also a very reasonable café for light lunches , snacks, or coffee & a lovely garden to eat if the weather is fine. The gift shop was a little diasppointing - no 'tasteful ' bags or pens for sale - easy things to pack in a suitcase!!!

My wife and I have been members of the Museum of Art since shortly after we returned to Jackson in 1967. We have spent many happy hours at the museum, and have seldom missed a special show there. One of my favorite permanent exhibits is the small pre-Columbian artifacts near the gift shop, which was donated by a great Mississippi... More

We have been members of the MS Museum of Art for several years. They have great exhibits as well as entertaining events. We love going to the after hours functions. This is my families favorite attraction in Jackson!

Nothing much to see, mainly MS artist represented. The free section was worth wandering through to kill a Sunday afternoon in Jackson but I paid $10 to see a mediocre watercolor show and the new acquit ions. Not worth the money

Check the website to see what show they have. Even if they are between shows there is a free exhibit that is worth the trip. You will be surprised at the gifted artist work displayed in the permanent show. Look on the walls where there are words of some of Ms. Most famous authors. Guarantee that you will be in... More

There wasn't any big show--Monet had just moved out--just the permanent exhibits. But they were enough. They're mostly by artists with a Mississippi connection or about Mississippi (though a small room near the entrance had some nice Piranesis). Very interesting! Many of the artists are, or were, talented, and there are things other than paintings--photographs by Eudora Welty (who knew?)... More

This museum is definitely worth seeing while in Jackson. The building is excellent, and the exhibitions are always of the highest quality.

Lovely museum in Jackson. We were able to see 2 great exhibits . Masterpieces from the Wadsworth Museum and Mississippi Hill Blues photography show. I also enjoyed a nice lunch at the museum cafe. If the weather had not been so hot I would have enjoyed walking around the gardens. Children were playing in the fountains out front when I... More

We find the Mississippi Museum of Art a main reason to go to Jackson. The current "Old Masters to Monet," though not as large as some we've gone to here, is still exceptional. We went on Saturday, parked within 50 yards of the entrance and were greeted with sincere enthusiasm from the staff. The exhibit was well laid out, a... More
