We went to the Children's Museum for Dr. Seuss birthday celebration. We love the museum and we always have a great time. We live 45 miles away but we try to go at least a few times a year because our 6-year-old son loved all the exhibits. We love the museum so much, we bought a membership. Dr. Seuss birthday... More

This is one of the highlights of a visit to Jackson. Every part of this museum is well thought out and the designers went all over the country to consider the best features of other children's museums before building ours. Other than one of the world's largest Scrabble boards, my favorite part is the interactive state map where patrons can... More

There is so much to do here for all ages! My daughter is 4 and it is so easy to do the activities with her or sit on a near by bench and take a break and watch her play. There are so many activities. You can play here all day and not experience everything. They do offer in/out privileges... More

Mississippi Children's Museum was a wonderful surprise! It is located in the LeFleur's Bluff State Park, along with the Museum of Natural Science. Very clean and well maintained. Interesting, educational, and fun exhibits. My 5 year old grandson loved it! We were there 4 hours and only left because the museum was closing. Worth the trip.

This is a wonderful place to go for fun with the grandkids. I booked reservations for the gingerbread house construction and we also toured the entire museum throughout the morning. The grandkids loved the book reading of the Polar Express and all of the activity stations. We got some great photos. The gingerbread house activity was well worth the cost.... More
