Mississippi Museum of Natural Science
LeFleur's Bluff State Park
The Museum with approximately 64,000 s. f. of research and educational facilities and cutting-edge museum exhibitry, focuses on the ecology and the natural science of the State. The Museum conservatively is able to draw well over 1/10 of the State’s population to the Museum annually (approximately 250,000 visitors). By expanding the on-site and off-site educational programming that complements school curricula throughout the State, the new Museum significantly augments the experimental science learning capability that is considered critical to promoting scientific literacy and environmental understanding for the Mississippi’s 500,000 school children. The new site, LeFleur’s Bluff State Park, which overlooks the Pearl River, is a large and priceless outdoor living exhibit that includes some of the State’s most geologically important and biologically diverse environments. The location of the Museum in this natural setting combined with over 30,000 s. f. of innovative indoor exhibits interpreting Mississippi’s natural heritage, makes the Museum unique among the major natural science museums in the country.
