A Noteworthy Stop
Begin your group's journey through the Mississippi Delta at the Gateway to the Blues Museum. Located on Highway 61, the museum is the first place many people see as they roll into Tunica.
Located inside an 1895 rustic train depot, the museum is a must-see stop for travelers. Music lovers will revel in learning the remarkable story of how the blues was born, and learn the role Tunica and the Delta played in building the genre's legacy through interactive exhibits, artwork and more—including a recording studio where guests could learn the basics of blues music and even have a chance to record their very own blues song.
The Gateway to the Blues Museum can accommodate up to two tour buses at any given time. Groups of 20 or more receive a discounted museum admission of $9 per person, with free admission for the motorcoach driver.
