“Good Stop for visitors”
Review of Old Courthouse

Old Courthouse
Ranked #5 of 40 things to do in Vicksburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 3, 2013

It's not a large museum, but it does have many artifacts relative to the battle. Also just reviewing the building is worthwhile. Entry fee of $5 is very reasonable. Small gift shop with some vintage items for sale... price for some a little pricey compared to other reputable relic dealers.
Personnel on site very friendly.
Does not take a lot of time to tour, so suggest you fit it in.
Good stop.

It was really interesting to see the Civil War from the Confederate side. I thought it was amusing there use to be a Union/Confederate Reunion a few years after the war, but they discontinued it because the men would start hitting each other with their walking sticks! If you like to cook, pick up the Moore's Groceries cookbook. It's worth it!!

If you have any interest in Vicksburg history or the civil war, this is a must! They even have the tie Jefferson Davis wore when he was inaugurated!

Lots of civil war memorabilia. There was no guided tour. Lots of period rifles, guns, etc. Several displays of collectibles by local residents. Antique pianos on display. Gift shop on site.

I love the building itself and the courtroom which remains very much the same. I thought this museum was a little dull (and I love history!). Am I glad I went, yes. Would I go again, probably not. My husband and I really enjoyed talking and learning from the Confederate soldier who sets up his stuff on the lawn.
