The Museum of Mississippi History encourages people to explore more than 15,000 years of state history. Throughout the galleries, visitors will explore interactive exhibits, see engaging artifacts and hear stories from people who shaped the state. The museum’s theme—One Mississippi, Many Stories—runs throughout galleries that include a 500-year-old Native American dugout canoe discovered submerged in mud on the bank of a Mississippi lake, author Eudora Welty’s manual typewriter and a recreated Delta juke joint that hops to the sounds of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Bo Diddley.
