Overall, this museum has many engaging, fun exhibits. I found the admission steep, $10 per person. This is one instance where I think the supervising adults should get a price break. For that price of admission, I would expect things to be in apple pie...MoreThank you for your review! We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our Operations staff! -Team MCM

The Little Red Schoolhouse

Reviewed By TravelingFreeWoman - Moro, Illinois

We found The Little Red Schoolhouse by following an attraction sign on I-55. A few miles down the road we saw this beautiful brick building. We were peeking in the windows at the old schoolroom when the caretaker walked over and asked if we'd like to tour the building. He was very informative and showed us around the schoolhouse both downstairs and upstairs.

The cornerstone for this building was laid in 1847. The downstairs shows a typical layout for an old school and the upstairs shows a typical layout for a Freemason hall. The caretaker talked to us about the history of the building and the history of The Eastern Star. This was a fun and interesting stop.

Mississippi State Capitol

Patterned after the National Capitol, this has been the Capitol building for the state of Mississippi since 1903. Today it is major tourist attraction as well as the focus of Mississippi state government activities.

Trustmark Park

Reviewed By Cucchiaj

Thoroughly enjoyed the stadium. It's a very nice facility. The Braves AA affiliate is doing a great job. They keep the crowd involved and the players actually seem to enjoy interacting with the crowd during pre-game activities. The ball field is well kept by the ground crew and the multimedia folks are top-notch. The food is "ballpark-priced" but very good. They even have jumpers for the kids before and during the game.
The youth baseball camp is awesome! They really teach the kids a lot and genuinely seem to have an interest in seeing the kids succeed. I would think most players at the minor league level would not enjoy having to babysit a bunch of little leaguers, but these guys truly looked like they enjoyed it and wanted to be there. For $150, these kids get a sack full of merchandise, lunch everyday, autographs, and invaluable baseball experience at a professional level. Worth every penny. You have to sign-up early because slots fill up. Jan Williams was very enthusiastic, and a tremendous help in getting my boy signed up.
We are definitely coming back every year!

Old Capitol Museum

The Old Capitol building served the state from 1832-1903 and was later converted into a State Historical Museum. Visitors can tour the grand dam of Mississippi politics, plus view dioramas and exhibits that trace the city's history. The museum also includes a large collection of Jefferson Davis memorabilia.

Reviewed By JHChicago2014 - Chicago, Illinois

The old capital museum is a good place to stop for about an hour or two. There are lots of exhibits on Mississippi - from a territory to a state - that cover the states constitution, legislative and judicial offices, and even some traveling exhibits. Anyone in the area should stop and visit. The museum itself is free and there are restrooms to use.

Cinemark Tinseltown

Reviewed By Devildog126

Went to see Alien Covenant on opening weekend. Went early around 5 on Friday afternoon and not much of a wait for tickets. The lobby area had been re-arranged some what and apeared to be clean. We went to a standard movie and quality and sound were fine. There were several people who came in after the movie started. They should stop selling tickets 5 minutes before the start to keep distractions down. As usual there were a few idiots that were texting and talking through most of the movie. The snacks were extremely over priced. There were several employees standing in the movie at the very end playing on their cell phones. I asume they were the clean up crew that is needed because people apparently can't manage to throw their trash away. This is one of the best theaters in the local area and they have lots of parking.

Eudora Welty House

The restored gardens of this deceased Mississippi writer.

Reviewed By wendy S - Madison, Mississippi

Eudora Welty remarked, "Fiction depends for its life on place. Place is the crossroads of circumstance, the proving ground of, What happened? Who's here? Who's coming?...:

Visiting her home, I felt this sense of place. When our group entered her bedroom on our tour, I could vividly picture her writing at her desk, windows open for a breeze and to inhale the scent of the garden and to hear the music from Bellhaven University drifting on the breeze.

The introductory video kept everyone's interest and the visitor's center exhibits are well done and provide glimpses into Ms. Welty's fascinating life.

She was a genius and I look forward to reading her work.
