The Old State Capitol building has been lovingly restored and now houses an excellent Museum of Mississippi History. The Senate and House Chambers have been restored to their late 1800's appearance and looked great, with some interesting video and audio narration. Supreme Court and Governors Office also interesting, Mississippi Hall of Fame display, and excellent information on state history. The... 更多
The primary focus of the museum is the building itself, which is somewhat interesting. Displays cover various aspects of the buildings history and there are recorded push button talks available to augment the displays and written plaques.
The old statehouse has been quite nicely refurbished. The Greek Revival building is grand without being ostentatious. The historical and interactive displays are informative and entertaining. We have a much better feel for the history of the state after this visit.
I found this museum huge informative and interesting, there is a lot to read and a lot of historical information so it may not be so accessible for young children, but I love history, culture and politics, so if you're into these things, you'll really enjoy it. Plus the building is really beautiful!
Lots of history in one place that one can explore as quick - or as slow - as one wants to. The lady at the reception was very helpful. The staircase is just wonderful.

The building itself is nice and there is quite e bit of... 更多
Great historical venue. Lots of information and great preserved items. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and can answer all your questions. This was a plesent trip for my family and we learned a lot. We were not able to park close and had to walk a few block.
Inside this wonderful building is a two story museum. It is "chock" full of antiquities from the civil war era. The building itself used to be the old courthouse and is remarkable. There is an entrance fee, but well worth it. There are so many things to see, it takes a while. Downstairs they have lots of weaponry, soldiers items,... 更多
Beautiful architecture and interesting history. On a HOT day, this is a great place to visit. Nice and cool. The spiraling wooden staircases at the front are beautiful and the views from them of downtown are worth a few minutes of your time. The rooms have been well restored. The self guided walking tour had lots of interesting facts and... 更多
