Jackson: Attractions and more...
Jackson is home to several historical sites of interest. The New Capitol—built in 1903 and projecting the Beaux-Art style of architecture—is the working seat of the State Government. The Old Capitol, restored to its original grandeur, now houses the State Historical Museum.
Experience the typical life of a Mississippi family in the early nineteenth century, authentically recreated at the Gothic Revival Manship House. Art enthusiasts should visit the Mississippi Museum of Art for its exquisite collection of paintings, especially those by local artists.
Those interested in enjoying the flora and fauna of the city must visit the Jackson Zoological Park and the Mynelle Gardens.
Make sure to visit the forty odd antique dealers in the Jackson Area.
Jackson boasts of the second largest parade in the country, in honour of Martin Luther King. Festivals such as the Jubilee Jam Music Festival and Crossroads Film Festival are crowd pullers.
