This building is an old depot by the river, filled with miniature ships, cars, trains and a very excellent diorama of the battle of Vicksburg. Also has a good gift shop.

Featuring thousands of miniatures and models of the Vicksburg battleground, ships from the Civil War thru today, cars, planes and trains, this place has something for all! Be sure to see the movie about life during the siege to appreciate the history.
