Field Trips

Ready to plan your trip? Here are three things you should do:

1. Learn About A Typical School Visit Experience

As the state’s largest classroom for exploring Mississippi’s rich and complex history, the Two Mississippi Museums are the premiere destination for school field trips.

  • What can I expect from a field trip to the Two Mississippi Museums?
    • The campus of the Two Mississippi Museums include both the Museum of Mississippi History (MMH) and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum (MCRM). 
    • Students will experience the full scope of Mississippi history from prehistory to present day and explore themes that are emphasized in the Mississippi studies courses.
    • Your students may be split into two group in order to have the opportunity to tour both museums. We recommend planning to spend between 1 to 1.5 hours in each museum. 
  • How should I plan lunch for my group?
    • Groups may bring their own lunches and picnic on BankPlus Porch or Entergy Plaza, if weather permits. Nissan Café by Fresh Cut at the Two Mississippi Museums has brown bag lunches for purchase at a reasonable price.
