This courthouse was built just before the Civil War. You may have seen wartime photos where this structure dominates the landscape. Today it houses a tremendous number of antiques, CW artifacts, etc. The collection is extremely impressive and eclectic; Despite the dated appearance of the displays, this is one of the finest museums I have visited. There is also a... More

We enjoyed everything, down to the large cat snoozing in a cradle! Very interesting exhibits. The grounds were beautiful as well, with the white dogwoods blooming.

We have been here a couple times now, but have not done the tour. We stay to the gift shop as there is a lot to see and the staff is always so informative.

This place is really cool. Its jam packed with original artefacts from the civil war and other conflicts as well as collections from the Vicksburg area such as china and furniture and there is a courtroom on the top floor that is really worth a look. The staff are very friendly and the building itself is beautiful even if the... More

This was our 1st stop on our Vicksburg Historical tour. The entry fee was nominal and the amount of historical items in this place is astronomical. They are all divided for their own time period. I felt like I was stepping back in time. The staff was friendly and helpful. Being that time was a little bit of an issue,... More

Magnificent old courthouse chocked full of artifacts from civil war thru WW2. Don't forget to check out the courtroom located upstairs. Best museum we visited in Vicksburg.

My sister said that the Old Vicksburg Courthouse was probably the prettiest she has ever seen. I don't know about that but it certainly stands high in my top 10.

Absolutely wonderful collection of Civil War era and remarkably well put together. It is historic to the fact. The employees are well trained and really know the history they present so good. There is so much to see and enjoy so give yourself plenty of time to absorb the history. It is also housed in a historical building. There is... More

This was a good surprise for me. I have been to several "civil war" museums and old homes, but this one had a little extra to offer. I found the "Teddy" bear display other small gems to be a nice little surprise. It is also diverse in displays about early Native Americans, slaves and much more. Of all the museums... More
