My wife and I returned to Laurel for our 50 year HS Reunion and spent our spare time cruising the town to relieve memories. 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.

LRMA is an amazing facility. With beautiful exhibits and great staff, I have throughly enjoyed every visit. The gift shop is stocked with wonderful educational toys and crafts along with gorgeous pottery and locally made jewelry. Definitely worth a visit.

This Museum is a hidden treasure. We went to see the world's smallest woven basket! We saw a basket about the size of thimble and thought that was it - but then the curator opened a drawer and there thru a magnifing glass was a basket smaller than a match head. Beautiful! The entire musuem - done up in an... More

For such a modest town, Laurel has a top quality art research and art museum. Well funded with a 100 year old endowment.

Forget that this is a small city in Mississippi. The art collection would be the pride of any city. Old masters in American and European art are not the only attractions. Native American and Asian works are also on display. The permanent collection is worth the visit but there are also large spaces for loaner exhibitions. The guide was a... More

Lauren Rogers Museum is a charming place to get away for a couple of hours. Friendly staff and beautiful creations inside. The atmosphere is very peaceful and lovely.

I know; I know; there's somebody, somewhere who will disagree, but my question is "Have you been to the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art?" It is amazing. Very soon there are great surprises in store, because of a near addition. There is no other art museum with this quality of art and so child friendly. You've got to see it... More
