The Lauren Rogers Art Museum was established in 1923 and became the State of Mississippi's first art museum. The oak lined streets of 5th Avenue and turn-of-the-century homes draw you to this beautiful specimen of Georgian Revival architecture. Through the years, the museum has had wonderful collections visit, but it mainly focuses on its permanent collection. You and your family can visit The Lauren Rogers Art Museum for free, but they welcome any donations to keep the spirit of one of Mississippi's historical sites alive. If you are a trained artist searching to refine your skills or an aspiring artist or craftsman, the museum often holds classes to polish your craft.
