Overall, this museum has many engaging, fun exhibits. I found the admission steep, $10 per person. This is one instance where I think the supervising adults should get a price break. For that price of admission, I would expect things to be in apple pie...MoreThank you for your review! We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our Operations staff! -Team MCM

Fannin Lanes

Reviewed By kaldonia - Jackson, MS

We have a big family and all the kids( all over 19) love to bowl. When everyone's in town, we never miss a chance to head to Fannin Lanes. We usually rent a lane and can get two games in an hour. For us, it's the best way to go. Of course, use can pay buy the game. Electronic scoring lets you focus on your game and not figuring out ten plus your next ball. Lots of fun!

Livingston Sweet Shoppe

Reviewed By wendy S - Madison, Mississippi

There is a wide array of candy available in this small shop. As others have noted, some oldies but goodies are offered there. This is a good shop to pop into if you attend the Livingston Farmer's Market or other event there. They are trying to create old fashioned, small town charm in Livingston and this shop embodies quaint.

Renaissance at Colony Park

Reviewed By kel G - Jackson, Mississippi

We never see large crowds at the Renaissance but we see big price tags. I was here on visiting the Apple Store for an upgrade and new device which offered free Beats headphones and $200 off. So I'm pleased about that. The other stores are for old maids and not really all that appealing to the younger generation. This mall lacks alot of the more trendy stores.

Mississippi State Capitol

Patterned after the National Capitol, this has been the Capitol building for the state of Mississippi since 1903. Today it is major tourist attraction as well as the focus of Mississippi state government activities.

Ridgeland Bike Trail

Reviewed By jrsmith8 - Monroe, Louisiana

Recently, my wife and I traveled along much of the Natchez Trace between Clinton to Tupelo, Mississippi. Occasionally the bike trail parallels the Trace particularly in the Ridgeland area.

While I did not have a bike with me, we often stopped at designated locations and I would walk a portion of the trail, particularly segments near the Renaissance at Colony Park Center in Ridgeland and the Ross Barnett Reservoir.

In addition, you will sometimes stumble across parts of the original OLD Trace, some of which is now sunken.

I enjoyed my short walks along the Trail and our travels along the Trace and highly recommend that you spend a portion of your trip biking or walking the Trail.

Old Capitol Museum

The Old Capitol building served the state from 1832-1903 and was later converted into a State Historical Museum. Visitors can tour the grand dam of Mississippi politics, plus view dioramas and exhibits that trace the city's history. The museum also includes a large collection of Jefferson Davis memorabilia.

Reviewed By JHChicago2014 - Chicago, Illinois

The old capital museum is a good place to stop for about an hour or two. There are lots of exhibits on Mississippi - from a territory to a state - that cover the states constitution, legislative and judicial offices, and even some traveling exhibits. Anyone in the area should stop and visit. The museum itself is free and there are restrooms to use.
