We were driving around looking for stuff to do when we stopped here. Friendly staff and full of interesting artifacts. Worth the stop and could easily spend a good hour inside.

Very nice display of Civil War artifacts in an actual town where a civil war battle occurred. If you are in the area, definitely visit. The building is beautiful.

Visited this museum and were pleased to find many actual relics of different wars. Only downfall would be this museum is more set up to mention who donated the piece rather than why. Anyone visiting Vicksburg should visit this.

A old historic pre Civil War courthouse with a lot of interesting artifacts. Plus on the second floor there was a interesting courtroom that has seen a lot of history

The Old Courthouse Museum does a great job of preserving history, with thousands of artifacts and fascinating information. The building of course is an artifact, but the museum itself is also an artifact!

Arrived early afternoon and immediately knew we would not have enough time to see everything at this converted courthouse. We will be back in the near future for a long weekend.
