Amazing museum! Really engaging for the whole family, set out beautifully, teaching history that NEEDS to be taught. Set aside a good amount of time to take it all in I would recommend this to anyone and everyone

An awesome place to visit. A Lot of history. An eye opening experience. I left having more respect for what our four fathers had to endure in order for us to have freedom and an education today.

The location is easy to find off a major interstate. The parking is free on the streets. The entrance is close to the street. It doesn't cost must to enter, but I suggest 2-3 days to absorb half of the information. Lots of information, some...More

This is a new museum that details the history of civil rights (and wrongs) as seen in Mississippi from the beginning of importation of enslaved people ( the words used by the presentations) into Mississippi all the way to present day Mississippi. There is no...More
