The Mysterious Hidden Gem Attraction In Mississippi You Never Even Knew Existed
Mississippi is full of surprises. In fact, some of the state’s best attractions are also the most hidden. And that’s exactly the case with the GI Museum. Not only is it located off the beaten path, but it’s housed in a building that looks very similar to many others in rural Mississippi. However, no matter how much effort it takes to get to, it’s worth it. A great visit for all ages, the museum is stuffed with memorabilia, some of which is extremely rare. Take a look:
So, are you ready to visit this hidden gem? The GI Museum is open every Wednesday as well as the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month, so keep that in mind when planning your visit. And since it’s a non-profit, there’s no charge for admission. However, donations are welcomed. For more information, call (228) 872-1943. You can also visit the GI Museum website or Facebook page.
