The Mississippi Children's Museum is a great place to spend the morning with your kids in Jackson, Mississippi. There are countless exhibits and plenty of interactive activities so they're sure to have tons of fun and, who knows, maybe even learn something in the process! The museum is divided into several thematic zones where the kids can explore various subject.
The Express Yourself area, for example, is based around art and the kids can try their hand at painting and acting. There's also an Exploring Mississippi area that teaches kids about the geography of the state while keeping them entertained with games and rides. I'd also like to mention the Healthy Fun area which is based on biology and teaches kids how to keep fit all under the guise of having fun. It's wonderful!
