Thomas Gray

Carol Tally

Very glad it has been preserved!

Kari Livingston

Beautifully restored with helpful docents and plenty of exhibits. Definitely worth carving an hour or two out of your day to explore Mississippi history.

Ian Alexander

My daughter and I loved it. There was more things to see than I expected. The details of the architecture and the size of the capitol was amazing.

Benjamin Lewis

This is a great museum to visit to learn about Mississippi's history. With static and interactive displays, it is enjoyable for all ages.

Jamie Hadorn

Very interesting learning the history behind the old Capitol. You don't see attention to architectural detail like this in new buildings.

Fun historical museum on the state capitol.

Don't be silly and get informed before entering a museum so you'll know what topic to expect. I enjoyed this museum. It is well taken care for and a lot of attention goes in the exhibitions. Of you're into (American) politics, history or you're a local from the state, it's a must see. I'm Dutch but still found it interesting as I got to learn about the above topics. The staff is very friendly. They took the time to answer all my questions. in total I've spent 3 hours at this museum. The museum is interesting too for children. The museum took the effort to interact with young visitors by asking questions that make them feel as a detective.

Great venue for IT guys to hold a security conference, very nice space

barry knesal

must see for ms residents. really, the interactive displays are very telling of the sadness of our history

reeser cooksey

very good museum

Andrew Rast

Nice place to get out of the heat and stroll through the historic rooms occupied by the state political figures of antebellum and late 19th century. The remodel looks great inside and one of the rooms has a hole in the plaster to display the original brickwork underneath. Enjoyed the creaky wooden floorboards.

Jessica McPherson

Great Jackson History here.

Jalen Loggins

Jamie Dahman

I was there for the Mississippi Humanities Gala. What a wonderful space!

Greg Wheeler

Great restoration - beautiful building. Worth the time.

Shawn Setzer

Beautiful. Definitely watch the video at the beginning of the self guided tour.

Gary Davis

History of the building and it's use in government. Wish the exhibits changed. If you saw it since the remodel it hasn't changed.


Outstanding! Great museum that gives you a detailed and unique yet insightful journey through time. Learn the history of Mississippi and how the wars shaped thought and opinions. Also wonderful art and architecture here.

This was an extraordinarily well done museum, particularly for being free. Informative and interactive while not being too detailed. Gives a good appreciation for both Mississippi history as well as the building itself‘s history. A top thing to do in Jackson.

Sylvie Pailloux

Very nice museum. Interactif activities look good for kids

Demarcus Jones

We have had the pleasure of making several visits to the Old Capitol Museum since its renovation. The Old Capitol has undergone an extensive renovation, post Hurricane Katrina, and if you have not visited recently it is surely a must see in Jackson. Step back in history and enjoy one of the finest museums in Jackson. Much history to see, enjoyable and fast moving enough even for younger children. If you only have a few stops that you can make and this is one of your options, we highly recommend a visit.

Jason Douglas

Great museum that shows the history of Mississippi. Kids loved exploring the different rooms. Best part is that it's free.

Great experience re-living youth memories on return visit to Mississippi. Old Capitol was not busy at all on this Sunday, and will be closing starting tomorrow for repairs, so I'm glad it worked at to visit this trip. Very enjoyable time.

Clean and well taken care of. Very informative and I love it where kids can interact with some of the exhibits and learn history of the state.

Paul Lancaster

Very rich in the history of the state.

AMcLeod timetraveler3

Very well done. Good use of historical structure

Stephen J Alexander

This is a great museum. Considering it's free, it's very much worth visiting. It's a beautifully restored old building with something for everyone. There are exhibits on the history of state government as well as on the history of the building itself and the politics that went into its building, retirement, and restoration. For an architecture buff it's interesting to see the unique curved staircases and the beautiful rotunda and dome as well as the cutaway details of the restoration.

Darko Sarenac

As far as jackson museums go, this is, well, right in the middle of the pack.

Love the grandeur!

I have never stayed here. I was driving by and I understand it was an old YMCA that was converted to a guest

Grouchy Corpse

Yes, I know it serves as a very important marker for MS history. I just find it very boring, and does not contain nearly as much as the two new museums. The Old Capitol tries to explain MS history and its own history, but it really should just focus on its own history. Especially, because they have the new Museum. Otherwise I would go check it out if you were visiting.

Was a nice place to visit and learn about what the Capitol building was used for. Free entry. Great helpful and friendly staff.

Tony Garcia

A good stop to get acquainted with Mississippi. This great, heavy stone, intricate, architecture is astounding! It's a shame not to see this kind of quality work anymore. It's an easy walk through museum. Most of it is "interactive", meaning its equipped with sound speakers and some videos that tell you summaries of the history that revolved around and/or associated with the state capitol.

Amazing place if you want to plunge into history. The reception staff is really nice and this is a must visit place whenever you're in town.

Awesome afternoon of exploring! The museum is free of charge and filled with great exhibits! They also have different ways of experiencing the museum depending on your interest (i.e. architecture, politics, hidden secrets, etc.). They provided a scavenger hunt for our kids, which included prizes for answering all the questions correctly. This experience far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it for anyone in the area!

Very good renovation of the Old Capitol as it was originally. The first floor exhibits and videos are comprehensive and informative, the rooms are laid out in their original purpose-Senate, Supreme Court, Library etc and there is a Hall of Fame room with portraits of famous Mississippians. Definitely worth a visit.

The Old Capitol Museum is the actual spot of the states first official state house. Now turned into a museum it is filled with history and information on the past of the building and how state politics works. It is free to all citizens of the state. It charges a nominal fee to non residents. Not sure how much haven't been in a while. If its still the same it was not much i think around $7.00 or less.

James Gorman


Friendly staff at the reception. Entry is free. Those who are interested in architecture and history, can visit this place. Building has three floors accessible for visitors for self guided tour, it has lift too.

Daniel F Macias

Gretchen McGruder

I had a great experience. The food was excellent. Great atmosphere.

Hal Taylor

It is a great museum on Mississippi history. It is located near the new civil rights museum so that is a bonus as well.
