Exploring Mississippi

The signature exhibit in the Mississippi Children’s Museum, Exploring Mississippi features a state of Mississippi climbing map that will familiarize museum visitors with the wonderful diversity of Mississippi in its geography and natural science, in its culture and history, in its work and leisure life, and in its connections to the broader world.The map will create a physical environment based on the geophysical characteristics of Mississippi. There are large motor and small motor experiences that meet the developmental needs of children. The exhibits in Exploring Mississippi provide experiences evocative of Mississippi life and opportunities for changeable programming and interpretation.

From the Delta to the Coast and under our feet, visitors will experience every region and level of Mississippi, along with its diverse history, people and environment.

Map elements range from Mount Woodall to the Natchez Trace, major highways to a Pine tree maze, the Windsor Ruins, and we haven’t even mentioned the Mississippi Underground elements!
