It's very small with only a small selection of Mardi Gras costumes. It took about 8 minutes to make it through the whole inventory. Nothing special to write home about.

For me the historic hotel that houses the museum was the highlight. The museum itself merely consists of some Mardi Gras costumes and a small gift shop

It's free admission, we saw it as part of the Biloxi train tour. It has costumes and information on the whole Mardi Gras celebration which is a very big deal in this part of the country.

This is a tiny museum in a corner of the historic Magnolia Hotel. The mardi gras history is limited, but the costumes are fantastic. There's a tiny gift shop too. Easy parking.

I was there the day before Fat Tuesday, so most of the displays were Mardi Gras King and Queen costumes. How elaborate they are! And some of those headpieces must weigh a ton!

If you've never been to Mardi Gras, you'll get a good taste of the costumes here. It's a quick free stop and worth it to see the glitz!
