All the artifacts here are from the people of Warren County. Excellent medical collection. A lot of history in one place.

Actor General Grant told us to see this place first, which was well worth the visit. The restrooms are outside, before going inside. Did not realize Vicksburg had this much history. Any questions ask for Bubba.

So much to see! It was worth our time! Make sure you go upstairs and see the courtroom. They have a small gift shop, also. Entry is $5 or $4.50 for Seniors.

The building itself is incredible, the history inside was awesome. We all learned so much about the civil war and the South. Be sure to take your time and go through each room. The staff was very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. Definitely a must do

The Old Courthouse Museum was recommended to us by our airbnb host. I believe the entry fee was a modest $3.00 per person. It is a fascinating place. However, we went at the end of the day at the end of a week when we...More
