Description:

Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees...

Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees that surround it and she would have been delighted that her beautiful folk art and her son's antiques have such a wonderful home. The Museum contains over 50 of Alice Moseley's original paintings and Tim Moseley's lifetime collection of art pottery, majolica, glass and primitive furniture. Playing at all times in the Museum is Alice Moseley on her DVD telling her stories and displaying for our visitors the unique and funny and talented person that she was. The Alice Moseley Museum is a Museum, but it is also an entertainment venue. Come to the Alice Moseley Museum and you will leave with a smile on your face and a love of an old lady whose favorite saying was, "Your reach should always exceed your grasp." She is still reaching out to you. Come see her Museum while you are in Bay St. Louis. Admission free. Museum Curator Geri Bleau will show you around.

Fun little place to visit

We stopped to get out of the heat and found ourselves thoroughly enjoying the quirky, happy art of Alice Moseley. So worth a visit if you're in the area.

The museum had some Mardi Gras memorabilia downstairs and Alice Moseley artwork on the second floor. Very interesting.

We stayed at the Blue Cottage while in Bay St. Louis and so started an immersion into Miss Alice's work before even knowing the museum was there. The museum is certainly small, but gives a great lesson on the work done by Alice Misely - the lessons by the guides there are well worth listens int to in order to... More

The staff (volunteers) who operate this museum are SO FRIENDLY. We stopped while riding bikes around downtown BSL w/the kids. I knew they'd be polite and enjoy the visit and looking at the art, but I didn't know how much they'd take away from it and how much fun they would have. Let them explore. Look for the dog. Listen...

Great place to stop for information about the Gulf Coast area (including rentals, maps of walking tours, etc.) Also on the first floor are costumes from the annual Mardi Gras festivities. The museum is upstairs, and the volunteer (or curator?) who showed us around was informative and entertaining. We were very glad we had taken the time to find this... More

This museum was just a stop in wandering down Hwy 90 across the Gulf. There is a Mardi Gras museum in the Welcome Center and the hostess mentioned there was a folk art museum upstairs. We strolled up there after seeing the Mardi Gras costumes and there was a great surprise. This woman with a GREAT sense of humor (Alice... More

The art work and items in the museum are definitely worth the visit. I had never heard of Alice Mosely, but based on the videos of interviews with her, she was quite a character. And I loved her art - bought two prints to bring home. One for me and one for a gift.
