An interesting peek at the Mississippi Art

My main focus was on the collection of local artists. There are painting and photos and some of them I found very good and inspiring.

The MS Museum of Art has some great exhibits and they are good to feature different genres from time to time, which changes things up a bit.

There is so much to do here. There is something for every age, toddler up to teen. Create art, experiment with science, live life underground like a groundhog, pretend to be a car mechanic, a builder or a fisherman.

The Mississippi Museum of Art has, in addition to displaying world class art exhibits and presenting various events, hosts local artists as they teach, demonstrate and mentor attendees. This small museum is an excellent visitation spot for tourists to Jackson, Mississippi.

Just saw the Modern Master's exhibit and was thrilled to actually stand in front of a Jackson Pollock piece. This museum has played a significant part in rearing my daughters, and they both went with me to this exhibit even though they are in their mid-twenties. When one daughter was about four, the museum had a Mary Cassatt painting on... More

I had my rehearsal dinner here and think it is a lovely venue for any type of event. There is a lot of space, especially if you can use all of the outdoor area and the food is very good too. My main suggestion would be that if you have a lot of people you should make sure they set... More

I went here alone on a Saturday afternoon and listened to my headphones and perused the art. Super relaxing and an excellent way to see the beauty of Mississippi and southern art. The woman in the gift shop was also super friendly. It also was setting up for a wedding, which looked like it was going to be beautiful. Only... More

I visited the museum last weekend to see William Dunlap's painting that is the focal point of the permanent collection. It is stunning! The building is beautifully designed and quite easy to navigate. I was impressed with the permanent collection thought I didn't like the temporary exhibit "When Modern was Contemporary" very much even though it was well curated. The... More
