The property is beautiful and parking convenient but the permanent collection does not contain any major artists and it is small. Check to see because a major artist's work could come through on a traveling exhibit. It's nice that major cities contain free museums such as this one.

My wife and I just toured "Civil War Drawings from the Becker Collections." These are the originals works my artists imbedded with the troops during battles and encampments. Aside from being great works of art, the exhibit is a good one for history buffs as well. Also on display is the Mississippi Collection with a wide variety of Magnolia State... More

We were looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon in Jackson and the hostess at our lunch place suggested here. What a surprise. This isn't a MoMA style or grand masters style, etc... it's all about Mississippi. And it's FREE! There was a section of art as submitted by some kids as part of an art contest. Really... More

Allow a couple of hours to tour this museum. It is really interesting, outsider art displayed alongside of more traditional pieces. Lots of Mississippi artists. Several Eudora Welty photographs.

This museum hosts exhibits you won't find in other cities. It is always a good idea to check the website regularly to see what is coming up and make plans for a trip to Jackson!

This is one of our favorite places. For a medium sized city, the Museum gives us so many cultural opportunities that you would not normally expect!

My son & I were in Jackson overnight on our way to Oxford. He is a sophomore in college majoring in Art History so I thought this would be a good stop. Having just been on a school trip to Chicago a couple of weeks before, he wasn't too sure. However, we were both glad we made the time for... More

Get here as soon as you can. The travelling Civil Rights Exhibit is so brilliantly done we wish every single American (of any age) could experience it. The entire museum is surprisingly well curated and for a small city this is a wonderful find and a must see if you are in town. A lovely museum café, fantastic gift shop... More

This is a great stop for kids and adults. Most of it is free , a minimum charge is for special exhibits. The current one is of picture during the civil rights a very moving exhibit. Overall , it is a cultural drink for the artist soul.
