Two Mississippi Museums

The MS Museum of History + the MS Civil Rights Museum With Multiple Spaces, Indoors and Out

222 North Street
Jackson, Mississippi 39201

In December 2017, the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum opened in celebration of the state’s bicentennial.

The Two Mississippi Museums is a place where Mississippians tell their own stories of the state’s rich and complex history. These stories are told through the many resources from the collection of the Department of Archives and History. We present the history of our state as never before with eye-popping artifacts, photographs, videos, and interactive exhibits.

The state has committed over $90 million for this state-of-the art 200,000 square-foot center. It serves as a portal to other cultural attractions across the state, preserves and stores over 22,000 artifacts, and benefits hundreds of thousands of people a year through museum visits, public programs, and educational outreach.

While the majority of funding for the museums has been provided by the Mississippi Legislature, the Foundation for Mississippi History raised $17 million in private funds for exhibits and programs and is continuing to raise money for special programs, school visits, promotional initiatives, and new technology. You can support this private fundraising by making a one-time gift or becoming a Two Museums Member.
