Mississippi, Tunica

Tunica Riverpark Museum
Tunica s history is rich, with deep roots in American musical traditions. Make your first stop in Tunica the all-new Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center. This new center is housed in an original 1895 train depot and is soon to be the home of the new Gateway to the Blues Museum. The Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center is the first stop along the Mississippi Blues Trail and the rich musical heritage that can be found in Tunica and the greater Mississippi Delta region. Then, head to the Tunica RiverPark, a must see historical attraction along the banks of the Mighty Mississippi. The Mississippi River Museum inside the RiverPark allows visitors to see first-hand the culture and artifacts of the region s first residents, Native Americans, and its first tourists, Hernando DeSoto and the Spanish explorers. The convergence of these two cultures helped shape the rich agricultural tradition the region is known for today.
