So, not expecting to go to the Old Courthouse, the fates took control and after a wrong turn I found myself alongside the Old Courthouse with an open parking spot 10 feet in front of me. I decided to check it out thinking I would walk the grounds and the museum and it would be less than one hour out... More

I enjoyed my stop here. The staff were very friendly. There are 3 displays down stairs and 5 upstairs a couple deal with Civil War history, one room upstairs is for Jefferson Davies. The small baseball display in one of the rooms was very interesting. The courtroom was very impressive. It appears as it would have in the 1860s .... More

Historic and lovely old building and grounds. Inside is a treasure trove of memorabilia from days gone by, mainly focused on Civil War era. Incredible collection of old china, silver serving pieces and other housewares.

$5 admission allows you to see the most fantastic collection of memorabilia from the Civil War era, from money to clothes to weapons, etc, You also get entry to the Old Courtroom with its beautiful old wood floors and tables. Don't miss the rooms behind the Courtroom.

The courthouse is well laid out. Civil war artifacts are very good, with low prices for what they are. Each room holds surprises, with many items to hold interest.

We stopped by today and I thought it would just be a courthouse with some exhibits. The folks curating this building have done an amazing job showing the period, Civil War history, and the history of the court house, everything. We took a lot of photos (no flash allowed), and spent a lot more time here than we thought we... More

This "Old Court House has been converted to a Vicksburg Historical museum and includes an amazing number of memorabilia for the early 1800s and early 1900s. Well worth the time and low price of admission. Plan on spending and hour or more here.

The Old Courthouse Museum was one of my favorite spots in the city. The museum has a room dedicated to the Confederacy which I enjoyed going through, it gives background of the Confederate nation with information as to why the South chose to secede. The historic courthouse upstairs was very interesting as well. Thank goodness PC culture hasn't touched this... More
