I need to preface that I don't have kids. However, I have visited the museum several times for hospital events and it is an awesome place for kids. I wish we had had one. Everything is interactive and it has cool lighting and there are a lot of things that are just visually appealing. Plus an awesome garden. I highly... More

It's basically a giant playground with some learned activities snuck in between. Your child can play for hours and not get bored.

The Kids loved it... A couple of their exhibits weren't working, But they still found things to do to stay occupied... They've changed a few things since when they first opened but all good changes... I would recommend going here.. Great Place for Small kids if you have them.

The kids always have fun here. Great Snack bar! Some of the exhibits feel a bit worn but its a great indoor activity and my kids (7 and 5) always want to go back.

The museum is an interactive play and learning adventure. They have upgraded with a Thomas the train play land. This museum has Mississippi history, science, art, music, life skills, and a beautiful new outdoor garden. They also have sprinkler splash pad where children can play in water in front of the museum.

Interesting/educational hands on activities for you, your kids or grandkids. There is a park nearby, so bring a picnic. The MS Museum of Science is also nearby, also great. Kids will love them both.

Next time we go, we will have to come earlier. We were there for about 3 hours (from about 2pm to 5pm)but that was still not enough time do everything. It was so much to do!!! Both of my children enjoyed it!! We will definitely come back.

My ten year old and six year old grandsons described this museum as a giant playground. They enjoyed each area, from milking a cow, gassing a car, building a home, doing construction work to making a steam engine go. We spent an enjoyable afternoon watching them play. Additionally, they had an area for quiet reflection and story writing and coloring... More
