Museums Across Mississippi

The Magnolia State features a multitude of museums, from the Mississippi River Delta to the northern region and southern Gulf Shores. Explore science, art, and history – plus celebrated Mississippi residents, including Elvis.

1. Art

Mississippi is not short on art museums. Explore the works of George E. Ohr at the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art of Art in Biloxi – then visit downtown Meridian for the Meridian Museum of Art and historic Tupelo for the GumTree Museum of Art.

Found in Jackson, the Mississippi Museum of Art is not only the largest museum in Capital City, but also the state.

2. History

Between national parks and historic sites, there’s plenty of history here. Central Mississippi yields the Old Capitol Museum, while the national park service boasts of museum-style visitor centers at Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site and the Tupelo National Battlefield.

Other history centers include the Windsor Ruins in Claiborne, Canton Multicultural Center & Museum in Canton, Natchez’s House on Ellicott's Hill, and of course the iconic Biloxi Lighthouse in – you guessed it – Biloxi.

3. Travel

Planes, trains, and automobiles – you’ll find it all in the Magnolia State. Check out the Canton Train Museum, the Tupelo Automobile Museum, and even the National Agricultural Aviation Museum in Jackson.

4. Science

You’ll be blinded by science in Mississippi. The Crossroads of the South, otherwise known as Jackson, features the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science – found at Lefleur's Bluff State Park.

Kids may explore the Healthy Fun Gallery at the Mississippi Children's Museum for a little anatomy and nutrition lesson. And environmentalists, discover the Pascagoula River Audubon Center in Moss Point.

5. Famous Mississippians

Get a marker handy – visiting these museums may seem like flipping through the Mississippi yearbook.

Explore the athleticism of former Mississippians at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. Then be sure to visit – as if you needed convincing – the Tennessee Williams Home in Columbus, the Eudora Welty House in Jackson, the John Grisham Room in Starksville, and the Elvis Presley Birthplace in Tupelo.
