Another special place in #Jackson, and not too far from Farish Street, is the Mississippi Museum of Art (MMA). This museum is located downtown but if you didn’t know where it was located (on Lamar between Pascagoula and Court Streets), you’d totally miss it. It’s hidden behind the Russell Davis Planetarium and Thalia Mara Hall.
To visit the MMA is a cool museum experience if you like museums (I do). It is situated on a lush lot with a broad plaza, beautiful trees and ferns. Parking is free. Admission, also free.
I visited MMA last November as I needed to take a break from different house projects. Sometimes there is only so much you can accomplish in a day, and sometimes you need a break. I did. I wandered through the museum and my favorite installation, if that is what you would call it, was a board where school children posted their comments. This one struck me with its simple message and heart. I enjoyed the moment. HEART.
