Over the last 10 years, My wife and I have now paid our third visit to this museum. This time we were blessed to see a temporary exhibit of the paintings and ceramic figurines of Mildred and Karl Wolfe, a notable Jackson couple in their day.

Their paintings are magnificent and we were very impressed. Their daughter still manages a studio in the Jackson area which makes ceramic bird figurines. In the museum gift shop we bought one of the birds plus a couple of other items.

This is a moderately-sized art museum featuring mainly Mississippi artists which I think you will enjoy a great deal.

My 8 and 6 year old really enjoyed the museum, they didn't want to leave. I would recommend planning for 5 to 6 hours stay. Once you leave, you can enjoy the wonderful park across the street and even visit the Natural Science Museum.

The main exhibit, The Mississippi Story or something, is terrific and free. This state is better renowned for its music and literature -- check out the visual art!

It's not the biggest or the best art museum, but it is worth the trip, especially when they have special exhibits or events.

We actually went there for a special dinner. Food was great and we met some really nice people. Loved the art! The mural in the entry was really interesting. I was surprised that this museum was so good!
