I went to see the Chihuly exhibit. The art did not disappoint but the display sure did. I didn't know such vibrant art could be displayed in such a drab way. I brought my small children and watched them like a hawk. I believe children should be exposed to the arts, just like grown-ups. Yet the security guard seemed to... More

Visited the Lauren Rogers with a group of friends, family & colleagues. Fantastic collection that is of interest to all age groups. Beautifully maintained facility & exhibits. This is a must see if you are in Laurel. I will certainly visit again, as they have changing exhibits as well as permanent exhibits.

It has been over 35 years between visits to the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art. When I was last there, the public library was still in the back and in the basement. When I went today, it brought back a lot of memories. The lady in the gift shop was very sweet and MOST INFORMATIVE. This museum is free admission.... More

The museum is nice. It is best to go when they have a feature exhibit. It is located near old downtown and there are some good restraurants near by.

This is a World Class art museum in a small town atmosphere. A must-see for anyone visiting Laurel, Ms. Lauren-Rogers is a wonderfully appointed and presented piece of the history of AmeRican art and culture.

We missed the tour with out HS group but were able to visit the next day on our own to see how it compared to our memories. It is still free, still a beautiful building in... More

Most busy travelers have been to the great Museums in New York, Boston, DC. So many of those, while wonderful for days of exploration, are overwhelming, but not the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art. It's the perfect size for enjoying architecture, paintings, and the extraordinary collections of real people. Visitors talk about the Silver collections, or the baskets, so fascinating... More

Amazing collection and exceptional special exhibits, especially when you consider this is in a small town in Mississippi. If you're in the area, it's worth the visit.
