Gateway to the Blues Visitors 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 late 2014, 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.

    After years of watching Mississippi Deltans buy flowers and heart-shaped chocolates in the name of Saint Valentine, and later gather at the nearest pub dressed in their finest green attire in the name of Saint Patrick, Down the Road blog contributor Fawn Horton pondered the idea of a Mississippi Delta version of a saint.
