The Museum


Inside the Alice Moseley Folk Art & Antique Museum

The Museum’s mission is increase public awareness of the art and life of Alice Moseley and perform charitable good works in the state of Mississippi.

The Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antique Museum is dedicated to

  • honoring the memory of folk artist Alice Moseley,
  • promoting tourism and the arts,
  • and doing charitable good works in Hancock County, Mississippi.

The Museum is located in Bay Saint Louis, a quaint town located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast between New Orleans and Mobile. Originally, the museum was located in Alice Moseley’s much beloved “Blue House” on Bookter Street. In February 2013, the Museum was relocated to the historic Bay St. Louis train depot.

There is not and will not be an admission charge at the Museum. Alice Moseley wanted the Museum to be open to all people regardless of income or social status.

To our great joy and happiness, tour directors and visitors call our Museum a “must see” destination on any visit to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Tour buses are always welcome and appreciated by us and we guarantee that all of our visitors will leave the Museum with a smile on their face.

The Museum is supported from donations and the sale of Alice Moseley prints and book. Donations to the museum are tax-deductible under section 501-c-3 of the federal tax code.


People think it’s some great secret that I’m working at age 89. You have to have a reason to get up. I wake up and read the obituaries. If my name is not in them, I get up and get dressed.
