Tunica Museum


Get to know Tunica’s history from the folks who know it best—its own citizens! In 1997, five proud Tunica townspeople wanted to preserve their town’s heritage, so they founded the Tunica Museum, which does all that and more!

Here at the Tunica Museum, you’ll see exciting exhibits, attend special educational events, and listen to the best history lectures in town! You’ll follow Tunica’s history from its Native American beginnings to the Civil War to the town it is today—and everything in between. You’ll even see how the addition of casinos in 1992 made gaming a part of the town’s one-of-a-kind culture.

And the best part is, you can do it all without spending a dime! Admission to the museum is free.

    Everybody is watching their spending these days. Some have decided that the first they should cut back on is fun. The truth is fun can be costly at times, but it doesn't always have to break the bank. I happen to love being able too show just how much fun I can have on the least amount of money, so recently I took it upon myself to try to spend an entire afternoon in Tunica on a budget of, well, ZERO dollars! Crazy sounding, right? Well I will have everyone know that It was probably the most fun I have had in a while and I left about as rich as I came.
