Give The Gift Of The Blues At The Gateway


The Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitor Center on Blues 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 visitors.

Visitor Center

Inside the fully restored train depot, 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, etc.

Gift Shop

The Gateway is also home to a great selection of official Tunica and Gateway to the Blues merchandise including t-shirts, magnets, drink koozies and more. You’ll also find plenty of blues items and specialty Delta items like Delta Blues Pecan Oil made in Tutwiler, MS. Or you can take home a one-of-a-kind souvenir like a miniature bale of cotton.

So make sure to stop by on your way into Tunica to learn more about what to do on your getaway. Or visit us on your way home to buy a memento of your time with us.
