I have been coming to Natches for years, and I had no idea this existed. If I had not read it on trip advisor, I never would have known. The building is nice, but you need to go upstairs and see the photo history of the city of Natchez. There are photos of young women, children, families, buildings and businesses,... More

What a wonderful exhibit of photos, both portraits and street scenes from years ago. This exhibit is off the beaten path but very much worthwhile. If you can't find it, ask. It's worth an hour of your time in Natchez.

The photographs are amazing. They are crisp and very clear. No fading. They were taken in the 1800s in Natchez. We learned so much about the town of Natchez looking at this photos. We learned Natchez was very progressive for its time on social issues.

A must see if you like photography or a history buff. Talk about a walk thru Natchez time line... from the ladies of Natchez to the children. Homes to steamboats. Very cool gallery if you are visiting Natchez or live here. Our backyard is amazing if you get out and discover!

This museum is a real find for a history buff. It shows many old photos of antebellum houses and businesses, many of which no longer exist. The photos give a glimpse of life in old Natchez. The photo descriptions give information on the city's history.

Went here based on TripAdvisor and having Stratton's ancestors. The photographs do a nice job of capturing a slice in time in Natchez. We only spent 20-30 minutes here but could easily have spent another hour.

This museum was recommended to us by a Natchez local and we were not disappointed. The pictures not only told the history of Natchez and its people , it also gave an insight into the life of the river trade. It also told some of the history of photography itself too. Well worth a visit

This was amazing. I felt as if I had stepped back in time 150 years! Upon touring Dunleith as overnight guests, we had seen several photographs there already of the Carpenter family who lived in the house for 90 years, as well as a man with an incredible story-John Lynch. The photographs were some of my favorite things about the... More

Great place to spend some time hearing the history of the Presbyterian Church. This building is very interesting and has pews with doors. Upstairs is the photo gallery showing hundreds of photos of life in Natchez from about 1865 to 1903. Really gave you a good idea of how people dressed and lived. No charge but a donation box was...
