Facility:Mississippi Museum of Art
Description:The Mississippi Museum of Art supports a home school curriculum by engaging a child s individual perception and experience of the arts. The ongoing exhibition, The Mississippi Story, provides an opportunity for students to thematically explore the nuances and character of their state and its history.

The Mississippi Museum of Art promises a lively, interactive educational experience! The largest art museum in the State of Mississippi, the Museum is located in a newly renovated, state of the art facility in downtown Jackson.

Explore multiple exhibitions in one visit.

Hands-on learning in our Closer Look Gallery - a unique educational space within the exhibition gallery itself where learning takes place much more differently than in the classroom.

Work with Museum staff to create the perfect visit - make your visit correlate to your lesson plans. Find out about ways you can prepare for your Museum visit through advanced reading, lesson plans, and printouts for the kids.

Have lunch in the Palette Cafe by Viking - order box lunches for your group ahead of time, or bring bag lunches and enjoy some sunshine on our outdoor patio or in the garden!

We love going to the MS Museum of Art in Jackson. We have purchased a season pass so that we can just drop in for short periods of time when we are in Jackson. The kids love it and the staff is exceptionally friendly. Recently we visited the Jim Henson exhibit there and it is fabulous! The kids loved it and it brought back childhood memories for me too. The exhibits are always changing and new stuff displayed- If you are interested in MS Art and history there is much to see and great variety in artistic styles and medias. You will not be disappointed. There is also a cafe to eat and a nice museum shop. Make a day of it and visit the Davis Planetarium too which is just across on the other side of the block. Parking is right in front!
