What is there to do?

If you were searching to visit the Vicksburg Battlefield Museum, then don't worry because all the old exhibits now feature at the Old Depot Museum - plus so much more!

A visit to the Old Depot Museum is history come to life, and if your kids love trains, then they will certainly be in their element! Here, history and transport meet, with a connection to the infamous Siege of Vicksburg - intrigued to find out more?

Here you can see the city of Vicksburg in miniature, with architecture displayed to showcase the area's historic buildings - some long gone. You are literally looking at the past!

Learn about the Siege of Vicksburg through a visual presentation, and even see the only diorama of the battlefield as it was back in 1863!

The Fall of Dixie diorama is a great way for kids to understand what happened in the battle, as this miniature diorama allows kids to see the terrain, the leaders, and the strategies, and all who endured the horrendous 47 day siege.

At 250 ft feet, there are over 2000 miniature soldiers, and offers an amazing birds-eye view of the layout.

Continue your journey through the Old Depot Museum by walking through military AND maritime history, with an impressive collection of model ships, where the Steamer Sprague and Big Mama of Mississippi live again!

The museum also features an impressive collection of railroad memorabilia too, really rounding out the historic and transportation adventure!

All aboard kids - it's time to depart for the Old Depot Museum to see what you might discover today!
