“This museum is promising!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We visited this museum which is temporarily housed in the mall. It has some beautiful art for sale and some good displays. We are going to visit the new museum when they get moved in May. We are keeping our eye on it. But if the sample we saw along with the video we watched are indications of their new museum then they will have hit a home run. We will go back.

“Not quite what you expect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This place is tucked away in the Edgewater Mall, not somewhere you would expect to find a museum. I do not think they do it justice. There is an interesting film on a rolling loop which is worth a look for the old photos of Biloxi which we found very interesting but not really much else
