The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art is a unique Biloxi experience. Home to the works of George Edgar Ohr, who was known as the “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” this museum features ceramic works that are now culturally celebrated. Alive from 1879-1910, it wasn't until after he passed away that Ohr was recognized as an artist.
The Walter Anderson Art Museum emphasizes the coastal culture and local landscapes of the South through its featured artists. Named for New Orleans painter, Walter Inglis Anderson, this museum features nearly 1000 permanent pieces on display, with numerous traveling and seasonal exhibits as well.
Check out the Mississippi Aquarium. An outreach and conservation center, this aquarium works with local sea animals in the region. It has 12 fresh and saltwater-specific habitats that support some 200 species. These include bottlenose dolphins, sharks, and North American river otters, just to name a few. An afternoon spent here is sure to be a blast.
For an even more hands-on experience, try out the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center. This center combines learning with fun, for an immersive and exploration-filled excursion. There are outdoor exhibits and indoor exhibits, all of which are kid-friendly and safety approved. Try out the super colossal climbing structure, or work in the children's veterinary center for a day!
