I was concerned about accessibility being mobility impaired. But that became a non issue when we found we were there at the wrong hours to get inside! But even without entering the building itself it is worth the visit. Many of the photos taken during the civil war show Vicksburg with this building in the photo. The old building was... More

What can $5 buy you these days? A visit to the Old Courthouse in Vicksburgh, MS. My husband and I visited the courthouse after visiting the national cemetery and were pleased with our visit. The courthouse is set up with history items in various rooms. The lady that was there was friendly and offered help a couple times. It's worth... More

The Old Courthouse Museum is a lovely structure situated high on a hill in downtown with a view of the river. It is filled with artifacts and stories from Vicksburg's past. The 2nd floor has a preserved courtroom and some detailed info on Jefferson Davis. Very worthwhile stop on your tour of Vicksburg.

This museum is loaded with authentic artifacts and the courtroom is breathtaking. The courtroom is my favorite part of the museum. Make sure you walk around the exterior of the building and look at the monuments. Take thd time for this.

Spending a few hours in the old courthouse museum is literally like taking a trip back in time. The staff are true representatives of southern charm and hospitality. The museum has a wonderful collection of interesting historical pieces and the courthouse is fascinating. This is a not to be missed stop while visiting the charming city of Vicksburg.

The building is well worth seeing. I especially enjoyed the dresses and clothing . Civil war area was excellent with very interesting rare exhibits. But still to me the building itself was worth the visit.

My family and I spent 2 hours taking it all in at the Old Courthouse Museum on July 4, 2015. It was special to be there to celebrate Independence Day but also to remember that this day marked the surrender of Vicksburg in 1863. The museum covers the history of Vicksburg and reminded me of rummaging through my Grandmother's attic.... More

A lot of local history is preserved and on display in the Old Courthouse museum. Over a million tourist come to Vicksburg to see the military park and other historical sites. This museum is a must see for... More
