The largest art museum in the state, the Mississippi Museum of Art features a permanent collection and traveling exhibitions from around the world.
The Museum's permanent collection on display is free; traveling exhibition costs vary. Right inside the lobby exists The Museum Store, which features one-of-a-kind gifts, exhibit-related items, and much more.
In 2018, the Museum established the Center for Art and Public Exchange (CAPE), a new initiative founded on the values of equity, transparency, and truth to form a "brave space" where the museum, along with visitors, can confront the past, using art to understand and inspire new narratives in contemporary Mississippi.
Educational opportunities await students of all ages through school tours, teacher workshops, and online digital resources. The Mississippi Museum of Art offers a variety of programs designed for K-12 educators that explore objects in the Museum's collection, interdisciplinary curriculum integration, and methods for teaching with objects.
The Art Garden at the Museum is a versatile, welcoming outdoor space that's free for all visitors. It features seasonal foliage, native garden beds, permanent art installations, and water features. The Museum also hosts exhibitions, festivals, outdoor films, musical performances, and other cultural events in the garden.
