Overview

Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees that surround it and she would have been delighted that her beautiful folk art and her son's antiques have such a wonderful home. The Museum contains over 50 of Alice Moseley's original paintings and Tim Moseley's lifetime collection of art pottery, majolica, glass and primitive furniture. Playing at all times in the Museum is Alice Moseley on her DVD telling her stories and displaying for our visitors the unique and funny and talented person that she was. The Alice Moseley Museum is a Museum, but it is also an entertainment venue. Come to the Alice Moseley Museum and you will leave with a smile on your face and a love of an old lady whose favorite saying was, "Your reach should always exceed your grasp." She is still reaching out to you. Come see her Museum while you are in Bay St. Louis. Admission free. Museum Curator Geri Bleau will show you around.

The Mardi Gras costumes are elegant and promote grand nostalgia. The Old Spanish Trail exhibit is well prepared and most informative.

Alice Moseley had a great sense of humor, and a love of life that is so obvious in her renditions of her life here in Mississippi! The museum is a fabulous re-creation of an historic building that was terribly damaged, during hurricane Katrina, and that...More
