After a decade in the making, the Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience, better known as the MAX, officially opened in Meridian in April of 2018. The MAX celebrates all kinds of artists from the Magnolia State—from musicians to chefs. No matter what your interests are, you will learn about plenty of people you may not have even known were from Mississippi. On top of that, the MAX offers weekly events, live music, plus a state-of-the-art recording studio. Find out how to visit at msarts.org/visit.
