I love antiques and snippets of history and I found both in this museum. I felt as if I had been transformed back to antebellum South

This is your basic small town historical museum which holds artifacts that grandkids didn't want, Civil War memoribilia, information about the city's founders and even a bunch of Indian arrowheads. Those looking for African-American history will find a few things though slavery is pretty much...More

Our time was short after spending most of the day at the national military park, but we stopped during the last half hour that the museum was open. The fee is small, and we enjoy history, so we made the most of our short time,...More

This old-fashioned museum is located in Vicksburg's most prominent landmark - its old hilltop courthouse - and offers an extensive, matter-off-fact chronicling of the city's history - before, during and after the Civil War. Lots of artifacts, both military and domestic. It's the best museum...More

This museum is well worth a visit. It is absolutely crammed with items of interest I'm not going to say much more and just let the pictures do the talking. This is a must see. Give it a try.

It took me about an hour to see everything at this museum. It cost $5 to get in. Some interesting items and exhibits. Grant's chair was interesting. The gift shop sells authentic civil war items.

Museum housed many relics from the Civil War, particularly the Vicksburg campaign and siege. Learned a great deal of information that guidebooks leave out, for instance Lincoln used 5000 negro troops to occupy the city after it surrendered--seems like a bit of vengeance on his...More
