“Gem of a museum”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

For such a modest town, Laurel has a top quality art research and art museum. Well funded with a 100 year old endowment.

“Treasure House”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Forget that this is a small city in Mississippi. The art collection would be the pride of any city. Old masters in American and European art are not the only attractions. Native American and Asian works are also on display. The permanent collection is worth the visit but there are also large spaces for loaner exhibitions. The guide was a great resource.

“The Art Capital of the South”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I know; I know; there's somebody, somewhere who will disagree, but my question is "Have you been to the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art?" It is amazing. Very soon there are great surprises in store, because of a near addition. There is no other art museum with this quality of art and so child friendly. You've got to see it to believe. Come on down, y'all.

“Pleasant Escape”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Charming escape for a few hours. Stopped by to see a new exhibit. They have a permanent collection of things and usually have a traveling exhibit on display several times a year. Way off the highway and maybe a bit hard to find. Worth the effort. Right in an area of older homes that were enjoyable to see. On-street parking was not a problem.
