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

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

Charming escape for a few hours. Stopped by to see a new exhibit. They have a permanent collection of things and usually have a traveling exhibit on display several times a year. Way off the highway and maybe a bit hard to find. Worth the effort. Right in an area of older homes that were enjoyable to see. On-street parking... More

The Lauren Rogers Museum is an unexpected surprise for a small town the size of Laurel. It has the quality of a large city museum. The building itself is lovely, and the art work which changes periodically is superb.
