Fodor's Review

As part of a process to create a cultural corridor in downtown Jackson, the Mississippi Museum of Art now represents the "open door" philosophy of the arts community. You'll feel welcome in light-bathed galleries flanked by a huge outdoor garden, where dancing fountains, outdoor sculptures, and a performance stage liven the green space. As a symbol of the museum's commitment to hospitality, admission to "The Mississippi Story," a part of the permanent collection, is free. Be sure to see photography by Mississippi literary giant Eudory Welty.
