I only had about 30 minutes to kill while on a road trip and decided to stop at the Old Courthouse Museum. For $6 you get to see several rooms worth of artifacts from the Civil War and other times related to Vicksburg. My favorite part was the actual courtroom on the second floor. I wish I’d had longer to spend in the museum, because I could’ve easily spent a couple hours there. I highly recommend if you want to see some interesting historical artifacts. A big bonus if you’re on a road trip are the restrooms located in outhouses on the exterior of the building.

What an interesting museum. Highly recommended stop in Vicksburg. We spent approximately 2 hours looking at artifacts and becoming acquainted with Vicksburg history. Can't say enough good things about Jordan and Marlene. They were so welcoming and helpful. Since the visitor center was closed due to Covid 19, we had little information about things to do and see in Vicksburg and these two were terrific ambassadors!

This museum brings the civil war era to life. The staff was very engaging, even with a couple of Yankees like us! Highly recommend.

Wow, am I glad we visited. The two-story former court house is loaded with everything from Vicksburg siege ordinance to one of the chairs used by general Ulysses Grant. There’s also a room dedicated to President of the Confederacy Jefferson Davis.

Okay I knew I had to visit the Old Courthouse but for a short time I wasn't sure that could happen. STEPS!!! lots of them were going to be too much for me and my bum knee. I circled around the site a few times finding no other way in. I asked at the visitor center about a handicap ramp but they were not sure. There was no way I would be this close and not go. Before going to the hotel for the night I checked one more time and indeed there is a ramp. Bright and early the next morning I was there without having to take a pain pill to do those dreaded steps. There is a chair lift inside if you need it. I took those old metal stairs slowly because I wanted to see the pictures along the wall. Everything inside is worth seeing - tons of items - from clothing to bullets. For me I needed the entire morning but at least two hours should be allowed.
