I took a student group to the museum and was amazed at the talent in the Mississippi Story room. The traveling exhibits that come occasionally are also excellent!

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.
