WHO ARE WE?
At the Mississippi Children’s Museum, We Take Fun Seriously!
We accomplish this mission through hands-on, engaging exhibits and programs focusing on literacy, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math), and health and nutrition–the keys to helping our children mature into healthy and productive adult learners.
