For most people, the Museum exists as a near-magical place for children and families to engage with and learn about natural Mississippi. They certainly wouldn't be alone in thinking so-last year alone over 140,000 visitors enjoyed the Museum's indoor exhibits and 300-acres of natural landscape and nature trails.


Along with the usual museum features, we also offer many exciting and educational activities for children, such as our popular creature features, hands-on fish feedings, and Camp WILD. Down the hall from our exhibits is the much in demand Discovery Room for preschoolers. And for kids of all ages, we have our Kids Corner, which includes a wide variety of science activity sheets, workbooks, puzzles, and more. The entire family will find new books, toys, Museum T-shirts, and artwork in our busy Dragonfly Shoppe. Please check on our family memberships to become a part of the Museum, save money on your trips, and enjoy the far reaching benefits of membership that come with being a part of Mississippi's Natural Science Museum.
