This was listed on Tripadvisor and a pretty strong attraction. The good news is that it was free. The bad news is that the art is not very good, focusing mostly on regional artists with an emphasis on unusual. I wouldn't waste your time. Museum...More

I took a student group to the museum and was amazed at the talent in the Mississippi Story room. The traveling exhibits that come occasionally are also excellent!

MMA has a solid permanent collection as well as important touring shows that come through. In addition, it hosts many arts events, from live music, to films, to art lectures.

The museum is free and it has a relatively small collection. However, the quality of the collection is very good. The garden is also very attractive. A great place to visit if you are in Jackson. We didn't eat at the cafe, but I can...More
