Traveling through Mississippi anytime soon? Check out one of these three fun museums.



On the state’s Gulf Coast, the Walter Anderson Museum of Art is, of course, focused on the artwork of Walter Inglis Anderson and related artists. However, the museum also taps in to the area’s culture. Special events bring together various art forms and other seemingly not-related topics (like indigenous plants) to create a one-of-a-kind experience.


In downtown Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the Hattiesburg Pocket Museum is known as the tiniest museum in the state. The ever-changing museum is free, always open and blends larger-than-life art installations with tiny creations.


Another favorite Mississippi art museum, the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art in Laurel, Mississippi, sits in a Georgian Revival structure built in 1923. The museum houses an impressive array of galleries dedicated to American, European and Native American art, as well as Japanese woodblock prints and British Georgian silver.


Need more arts-related fun? Make sure to mark your calendar for the Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival, the largest arts fest on the Gulf Coast, taking place this year Nov. 5–6, drawing artisans and travelers from all over the country.
