One of Mississippi’s best kept secrets is the Mississippi Wildlife Heritage Museum located in the small Delta town of Leland. It is located on the corner of Third and Broad in the historic Joe Turner Hardware building. The building is over 100 years old and the curators maintained as much of the original building as possible. The hardwood floors are original to the building. The dozens of antique fishing lures are housed in bins that once held bolts, nuts and nails. Billy Johnson, the originator of the museum said that much of the original building was maintained and that native wood like cypress was used in any remodeling.
The museum is chock full of hunting and fishing memorabilia. There are three large rooms holding hundreds of exhibits. Tours are encouraged. A visit to the Mississippi Wildlife Heritage Museum is a perfect outing for church groups, school groups, Scouts or just a family outing. We are open six days a week, Monday through Saturday from 10:00 until 5:00. The fee is $10 per person and $7 for seniors.
Children 16 and under are free. Come see us!
