If in Jackson this museum is worth a visit. It is a small but nice collection. We were not aware that Eudora Welty was also a photographer, and enjoyed her photos tremendously.

We attended a wedding rehearsal dinner and party here last week and toured the museum as well. This museum has some outstanding works of art and sculptors. We would highly recommend this to anyone who happens to be in the area. It is beautiful, clean, and the people working here are knowledgeable of the arts. The food was fantastic. We really enjoyed the Donna and Jim Barksdale Galleries.

Artist and architect both found plenty to enjoy. Well designed modern facility with an excellent regional collection -we were fortunate to view a special show of one man's (or women's I forget) collection of african-american art. Wonderful; great collection with several outstanding piecies.
Oh, and the food beat anything we had in a Jackson restaurant.
Oh, and kids playing in the water squirts was the best of all.
