Field Trips

Plan your field trip in three easy steps.

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 is 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 includes both the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

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 groups 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 purchase box lunches from the Nissan Cafe' by Nick Wallace Culinary. Email christine@nickwallaceculinary.com or Lindsey@nickwallaceculinary.com for more information. Groups may also bring their own lunches and picnic on the BankPlus Porch or Entergy Plaza, if weather permits. View the menu here.

2. Request Your School Group Visit Now

We want every school group that visits the Two Mississippi Museums to have a meaningful experience. To accomplish this goal, we ask that groups book their field trips in advance.
