Finishing touches being placed on Mississippi museums

“We greatly anticipate the opening of the museums that will highlight our history and hopefully bring great pride to our state and city,” said House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton.

The museums are encompassed in one building on the eastern edge of downtown Jackson. Though one building, each side is distinctive from the other, designed to match the museum housed on each side.

The museums share a large common area in the middle that houses a gift shop, cafe, temporary exhibit spaces and a ticket counter where admission can be purchased to one museum or in a package deal for both museums.
