Anyone living in the Hattiesburg area or visiting the area definitely should visit this museum! We were amazed at the amount of items on display. Our nine-year-old son loved it, there were great reenactments and very interesting things for them to see.

Surprising collection of WWII & other military artifacts and displays - tanks, helicopters, aircraft, indoors and out. Plan some time to spend here.

This museum covers a large range of history. We learned some history of Camp Shelby that we had not known. There are very interesting artifacts and the museum is well kept.

I enjoyed this museum so much, I went back again. There are a number of tanks and various vehicles displayed outside, but the displays inside are the best. This museum does a great job displaying the military history of Mississippi and it's people. Highly recommended....More
