This old courthouse now converted to a museum is a treat. It holds a very wide variety of interesting exhibits from the area and beyond. The upstairs courthouse is the icing on the cake of a very worthwhile visit.

The history of the grand building being saved by a tenacious woman is inspiring and the collection here is extensive. The museum staff is friendly and knowledgeable, but lucky you if your visit is on a Thursday or Saturday, when noted author/historian and former curator...More

This museum gives a fascinating view of the history of Vicksburg and the surrounding area. Historians will appreciate the emphasis placed on the Civil War Battle of Vicksburg. There is much to see inside this lovely old building.

This place has more civil war records and history information than most places in Mississippi and even in the whole South. Bottom floor contains exhibits from local history, and top floor a well-preserved court house room from that period of our history.

A lot of artifacts from the battlefield but also from the history of the city. If you have the opportunity, speak to Gordon. He is wealth of history and information about Vicksburg

So much to see here. No visit to Vicksburg would be complete if this museum was not on your list. Take a couple of hours.
