New Jackson Museums Could Mean More Tourist Money

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Business owners expect two new museums will mean more money for Jackson hotels, restaurants, and retailers especially during the summer. Thousands of people were in downtown Jackson last weekend for the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights and Mississippi History Museums. Figures on the attendance and financial impact to the area are not yet available but Greater Jackson Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Duane O’Neill estimates that 180,000 visitors will bring $17 million dollars to the state annually.
