Just saw the Modern Master's exhibit and was thrilled to actually stand in front of a Jackson Pollock piece. This museum has played a significant part in rearing my daughters, and they both went with me to this exhibit even though they are in their mid-twenties. When one daughter was about four, the museum had a Mary Cassatt painting on... More

I had my rehearsal dinner here and think it is a lovely venue for any type of event. There is a lot of space, especially if you can use all of the outdoor area and the food is very good too. My main suggestion would be that if you have a lot of people you should make sure they set... More

I went here alone on a Saturday afternoon and listened to my headphones and perused the art. Super relaxing and an excellent way to see the beauty of Mississippi and southern art. The woman in the gift shop was also super friendly. It also was setting up for a wedding, which looked like it was going to be beautiful. Only... More

I visited the museum last weekend to see William Dunlap's painting that is the focal point of the permanent collection. It is stunning! The building is beautifully designed and quite easy to navigate. I was impressed with the permanent collection thought I didn't like the temporary exhibit "When Modern was Contemporary" very much even though it was well curated. The... More

Lovely inside and out, the museum makes up for small, only moderately impressive exhibits by having many outdoor events.

The building is beautiful, and when they have events, they are always worth attending. That being said, I am not that impressed with their works which are on permanent display.

The Mississippi Museum of Art is outstanding for a city the size of Jackson. Approaching the museum is in itself a pleasant experience because of the attractive fountains and the Art Garden. Both the museum's permanent collection and the visiting exhibitions are quite good. The Palette Cafe is a great place to eat lunch, and browsing the gift shop is... More
