We called to make sure the Museum was open and were told it was. When we got there, the gift shop was open but the museum was under renovations.

Small museum. It doesn't take very long to go through. They have beautiful costumes from Mardi Gras days past. It is worth taking a few minutes to stroll through!

I was a little surprised by this museum. It was small and didn't have as much in it as I thought it would. If you are in the area already it is fine but I wouldn't make a special trip to see it.

It's very small with only a small selection of Mardi Gras costumes. It took about 8 minutes to make it through the whole inventory. Nothing special to write home about.

This museum was a stop on our Biloxi Tour Train. It was very nice and did not take very long to go through. Enjoyed our time there.

For me the historic hotel that houses the museum was the highlight. The museum itself merely consists of some Mardi Gras costumes and a small gift shop
