Description:

Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees...

Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees that surround it and she would have been delighted that her beautiful folk art and her son's antiques have such a wonderful home. The Museum contains over 50 of Alice Moseley's original paintings and Tim Moseley's lifetime collection of art pottery, majolica, glass and primitive furniture. Playing at all times in the Museum is Alice Moseley on her DVD telling her stories and displaying for our visitors the unique and funny and talented person that she was. The Alice Moseley Museum is a Museum, but it is also an entertainment venue. Come to the Alice Moseley Museum and you will leave with a smile on your face and a love of an old lady whose favorite saying was, "Your reach should always exceed your grasp." She is still reaching out to you. Come see her Museum while you are in Bay St. Louis. Admission free. Museum Curator Geri Bleau will show you around.

This free museum is worth a visit for sure! The lady running the museum is a gem herself. You can tell she is very passionate about art and Alice Moseley. She easily and happily answered all of our questions and taught us so much. This is a must if you are in the area.

The Alice Moseley Museum was a total surprise. We had gone to the visitors' center downstairs and the lady there told us about the Museum on the 2nd floor. Alice Moseley was a Bay St. Louis resident and did all of the paintings in the museum. She passed away a few years ago at the age of 93. The curator... More

Alice Moseley's Blue House across the street is a perfect addition to the museum visit to experience art and creating. Local artist Ann Adele Blackledge (Nettles) does a great job of keeping the artistic spirit alive @ The Blue House. Her love of art and teaching artists, young and old, is obvious when she begin talking about the process of... More

This free museum captures the character and spirit of folk artist, Alice Moseley, who took up painting at 60, moved to Bay St. Louis at 79, and lived there as a beloved local until she passed at 94. There is a nice collection of her paintings and also artifacts from her life/home including a corner devoted to Mississippi bluesmen. Her... More

This museum is co-located (upstairs) with the L & N Train Depot and in my opinion better than the depot itself. You will see original artwork from Alice Moseley and part of a glass collection started by her son. Each piece of art tells a story about life of Alice, her family (including pets), and family. One story to ask... More

This is a Musuem but is more of a tribute to Alice Moseley the folk artist. Contains many prints of her paintings which are for sale. The Museum is across the street from her famous Blue Cottage which can be rented. The building itself is in an old L&N Railroad Depot. There is no rolling stock or railroad memorabilia.
