There are two museums on campus. One is about Civil Rights and the other about Mississippi. Due to time constraints we only visited the Civil Rights museum. As with the civil rights museums in Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama there is plenty of proof of how...More

The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum is amazing. The museum itself is state of the art. I spent about 3 hours there trying to read just about everything I could. I made it through a little over half the museum in that time frame. We all...More

There are two museums side by side: Mississippi history and civil rights. They are both arranged in some sort of wagon wheel layout in topic sections which is confusing. The history museum is laid out in 18 sections by dates and the civil rights in...More

While in Jackson we couldn’t miss seeing the Civil Rights Museum, I’m glad we did. The museum is thought provoking and brings you to tears. We saw older Black seniors tearful because they lived it. It brought back bad memories. The museum showed how for...More

So much to see and learn in both museums! If possible do one per day to fully experience each museum. If you're like me and enjoy seeing and reading everything make sure to stretch it out over two days. Well orchestrated exhibits!

Regardless of one’s knowledge of the history of America, the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum will provide an “eye-opener” to the academic; and surely a “wake-up call” to anyone else. We experienced a range of emotions as we walked through the circular designed passageway through our...More

This is a nice new building and the exhibits are well and thoughtfully laid out. It covers the time periods of slavery in the South, the Civil war and the struggle for Civil liberties in the mid twentieth century. For us, in our seventies and...More
