We are new to MS and this was one of our first stops back in Aug 2017. My son eagerly asked if we could purchase a membership and now he visits 1-2 times/month.

Took my kids for the first time. They loved it. I have a 1 & 8 year old. It was something to do for both children. My 18 year old even played with them. I am considering a birthday party for my youngest in March.

The Mississippi Children’s Museum in Jackson MS is the perfect place to take children young and old. There is something for the entire family to do and the experience is unforgettable. Food, fun and family. What more could you ask for?

Nice small kids museum. Geared more to our three year old than the eight year old. Used it as a travel stop to get out of the car. $40 for the four of us.
