My son is 8 and we've been here a half dozen times in the past 2 years. He loves it and could spend hours more if I didn't make him leave. There are a lot of exhibits that haven't changed at all and they could definitely use an overhaul but it's still a good place, as far as Mississippi goes. The Red Rocket Cafe actually has decent food! Try the Spin Art if it's open, they end up looking pretty nifty. Fun and educational! I love the Scrabble floor and the exhibit that changes every couple of months.

Stairs are everywhere... Not very stroller or wheelchair friendly. But kids have a great time!

We love the MS Children's Museum! We make sure to visit everytime we come to Mississippi! We visit so that our son can burn off some energy & do something educational while visiting friends and family.

This place is fantastic!!!! My little boy (almost 2) loves this place. There are all sorts of interactive exhibits for various ages and they're all about Mississippi! It's a must if you have children (especially younger ones) but I'd go even without my son!
