Events Events: Old Capitol Museum

A Walk Through History

March 22- April 29 at the Old Capitol Museum. A Walk Through History. From the Clarksdale Bell used for trade by Spanish explorers in the 1500s to the flip flops worn by a female Freedom Rider incarcerated at the Hinds County jail in 1961, thirty-six iconic objects from the MDAH museum division collection will be on display in this limited-time exhibit. Many of the artifacts have not been seen since Hurricane Katrina forced the closure of the Old Capitol in 2005 and won’t be seen again until the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum and the Museum of Mississippi History open in 2017. For more information call 601-576-6920 or email Old Capitol.
