Museum of Mississippi History

The immediate priority for the Foundation is funding exhibits in the new Museum of Mississippi History.

The Foundation has set a goal of raising $10 million to meet the costs of artifact conservation and reproduction, exhibit fabrication and installation, and interactive components.
