Went on a field trip with our 3Ker. Very family friendly and well-thought out, interactive exhibits. Loved how there was emphasis on the historical aspect of Mississippi!

This kids museum is beautifully done. I loved how different aspects of the exhibits were educational about Mississippi. One could easily spend the day here or a couple of hours if needed to be cut short. Great for ages 0 to adult. It is hands...More

This place is amazing. It's so much to do. The key to enjoying this place is ensure you go at a low traffic time. Keep a close eye on your child because they can get lost in the swamp of active kids. This is a...More

Depending on your child's age, attention span, and interest, I would say anywhere from 1-3 hours. There is a cafe inside if you want to take a snack break. Everything is self-directed, so it's really up to you as to how... More
