The Oaks Museum is a historic house museum in Jackson, Mississippi. It is one of the few surviving antebellum structures in the city.

The Oaks Museum features the Greek Revival-style cottage also known as the James Boyd Home. It was built in 1853 and served as the home of James Hervey Boyd and his family. Boyd served as a mayor of Jackson for four terms and an alderman for six terms. The property once covered four acres, but has now dwindled down to its current size. The Boyd family owned and occupied the house until 1960 when the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Mississippi purchased the property for preservation. They later turned it into a house museum and headquarters.
