If you are looking for hand-crafted gifts made by southern artists, this place has what you want. It is even open on Sundays. As a bonus, artists are often working the counter and -- at least in our experience -- happily talked about their craft.

This is a great place to look for one of a kind items. Craftsman bring their wears to sell here, so you won't see some of these things anywhere else. Great selection from multiple craftsmen. Some items are a bit pricey but some are a great bargain. The only drawback is the short hours.

Go to the Mississippi Craft Center to see what can be made by talented Southern people. Wonderful selection of truly unique things from pottery, wood, textiles, iron, jewelry, clothing, paintings. Just about everything. A great place to shop for that special something.

The Center contains some great works by Mississippi artists, and if customer service were strengthened it could be a very good stop for travelers. There was major construction going on along the entrance drive that made it look like the facility was not open. We drove by and then saw parked cars in a lot on the site and turned... More

Displays a wonderful collection from the highly skilled artisans from Mississippi and beyond, the Crafts Center is also a complex worthy of admiration on its own. It is conveniently located close to the Reservoir and to multi use trails of the Natchez Trace. Keep an eye out for special events like "Sheep to Shawl" where artisans demonstrate the complete cycle... More

Very interesting building with plenty on display and for sale. Classes in lots of craft categories. Wonderful event space. Attended a wedding there. The ceremony was in the back at the gazebo with the reception inside. Was perfect for the event. Lots of free parking and its close to the reservoir/ park.

The creativity of MS artist is amazing. Each time we visit we see new and even more impressive works of art. Also, we always purchase something. The prices of these unique pieces run just a few dollars to thousands.

There are some outstanding works of art. Woodworking, baskets, jewelry, ceramics, and lots more. I marvel at the craftsman ship in Mississippi. I've been to all 50 states and 40 countries and this measures up to any other crafts display. It is smaller than some I've seen, but it is well done. It is NOT in Jackson, MS as listed.... More
