This museum is well worth a visit. It is absolutely crammed with items of interest I'm not going to say much more and just let the pictures do the talking. This is a must see. Give it a try.

It took me about an hour to see everything at this museum. It cost $5 to get in. Some interesting items and exhibits. Grant's chair was interesting. The gift shop sells authentic civil war items.

My fiancé's sister got married this weekend at the Old Court House Museum. It was gorgeous! The wind was blowing, the rain held off, and she made an absolute beautiful bride! I would highly recommend future couples consider this venue. Just make sure you wear appropriate shoes for all those stairs!

Museum housed many relics from the Civil War, particularly the Vicksburg campaign and siege. Learned a great deal of information that guidebooks leave out, for instance Lincoln used 5000 negro troops to occupy the city after it surrendered--seems like a bit of vengeance on his part to punish this proud Southern city.

If you enjoy revisionist history and trips into a parallel world where the Confederate states and army were pitiful, helpless victims of a tyrannical North, then this is the place for you. I would hardly call this courthouse a museum. It's more of a temple to Jefferson Davis, slavery apologists, and regressive nationalism. Oh, and the bathrooms are actually really scary – they're outside and feature toilet "stalls" with no doors and no real walls between them, as well as sink fixtures that are so corroded by acidic water – or god knows what – that at least one faucet is just a jagged heap of metal with an "out of order" note above it. On another note, this site is nothing if not interesting....
