To honor all who have served, the Two Mississippi Museums are hosting a Veterans Day ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 9.
The event, which will be held on the Entergy Mississippi Plaza in front of the museums, will begin at 10:30 a.m. It will include a performance by the 41st Army Band, a moment of silence, and recognition of the veterans in attendance and of fallen heroes by Major General Janson D. Boyles. A memorial and wreath laying will follow.
As part of the celebration ahead of Saturday’s holiday, the Two Mississippi Museums will also be offering free admission to those currently serving in the military, veterans, and family members of a veteran from Thursday to Saturday. Admission is always free on Sundays.
Free parking will be available in the parking garage located behind the museums on Jefferson Street.
