ABOUT THE VENUE
TWO MISSISSIPPI MUSEUMS
The Two Mississippi Museums is a place where Mississippians tell their own stories of the state’s rich and complex history. These stories are told through the many resources from the collection of the Department of Archives and History. We present the history of our state as never before with eye-popping artifacts, photographs, videos, and interactive exhibits.
