Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitor Center


The Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center and Museum on Highway 61 is the first place many people see when they roll into Tunica. This rustic train depot, circa 1895, is a must-stop for travelers before and after a visit to Tunica. Inside, travel counselors are ready to give directions, advice and the latest information about events, restaurants and attractions. They can even help book you a hotel room, make dinner reservations or find you a perfect, one-of-a-kind souvenir in the gift store.

The Visitors Center will soon be home to the Gateway to the Blues Museum. Opening in January 2015, this must-see attraction for all music lovers, will tell the remarkable story of how The Blues was born and the role Tunica played in building the genre’s legacy. Keep up-to-date on the museum development by following TunicaMS on Twitter or Facebook.
