Visiting Some of Mississippi’s Best Museums
Mississippi has more things to see than there are ways to skin a cat as we say here down South. But, when it comes to attractions, one thing we do best is museums. Mississippi is home to dozens of the country’s most interesting museums—and if you’re thinking that ours are just a collection of buildings stuffed with southern history, think again! Our museums run the gamut from art to science to music and more. Here’s just a sampling of what you can see during your stay at Harmony Farm:
The Tupelo Automobile Museum – Tupelo, Mississippi
Car buffs will get a kick out of this one! The Tupelo Auto Museum features over a hundred cars in a 120,000 square foot facility. The earliest models on display date back to the 1800s and the exhibit also includes rare finds like the 1937 Lagonda. It even features celebrity cars including one purchased by hometown hero Elvis Presley. The museum is open seven days a week and offers discounts for children and seniors.
