I love antiques and snippets of history and I found both in this museum. I felt as if I had been transformed back to antebellum South

This is your basic small town historical museum which holds artifacts that grandkids didn't want, Civil War memoribilia, information about the city's founders and even a bunch of Indian arrowheads. Those looking for African-American history will find a few things though slavery is pretty much glossed over. The civil rights era isn't really covered in much detail either.

Our time was short after spending most of the day at the national military park, but we stopped during the last half hour that the museum was open. The fee is small, and we enjoy history, so we made the most of our short time, and staff did not rush us out. The rooms of the old courthouse are stuffed full of historic treasures of the town and its people. Each space is dedicated to a particular aspect of the town history. Visit the areas that most interest you, or allow time to enjoy every room. Don’t miss the preserved courtroom!

This old-fashioned museum is located in Vicksburg's most prominent landmark - its old hilltop courthouse - and offers an extensive, matter-off-fact chronicling of the city's history - before, during and after the Civil War. Lots of artifacts, both military and domestic. It's the best museum in the city.

We rate this the best place to visit in Vicksburg. The beautiful old building, still a glorious piece of will maintained history with everything you could ask regarding the epic battle of Vicksburg. You must go and take time to read the exhibits, see the clothing and feel the presents of the courtroom. I found myself walking on worn wooden plants that I wish could talk.
