The beautiful Bay St. Louis train depot, built in 1928, houses the visitors center, where visitors can get information about businesses and attractions in the Bay St. Louis area, the Mardi Gras Museum, featuring beautiful Mardi Gras costumes and the Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antique Museum. The depot itself is set in a park like setting featuring many Live Oak trees, picnic tables, benches, and a walking path. Duck food can be purchased in the visitor center and many ducks and geese are waiting to be fed at the duck pond on the depot grounds. There is a lot to do and enjoy at the depot and to learn the history of this building and of the difficulties experienced in earlier times maintaining a railroad across the nearby Honey Island Swamp. The Alice Moseley Museum is an entertainment venue as much as it is a Museum and visitors to see Miss Alice usually leave the Museum with a smile on their face and a love of Alice Moseley in their hearts.

If you are an historic train depot fan, you might like this restored depot from the 1920's. Although there is little train memorabilia on display, the building, location and train traffic were rewarding. Currently on display are Mardi Gras costumes by designer Carter Church (stunning),...More

A small museum, but worth the stop. Mardi Gras original Costumes, some Mississippi Blues History from the 30's up to B B King. The upstairs has the Folk Artist Alice Mosley Art work on display.

This is an average museum depicting the charm of an old south train depot. The depot lobby displays change during the year and when I visited it was the Mardi Gras season, thus appropriately decorated with that theme. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable...More

There are some great exhibits in the Depot. Events are held there from time to time. The building was renovated and repaired in 2006-7. Very close to downtown Bay St Louis. Worth stopping by to see this beautiful old building with a new purpose and...More

This depot was featured in the movie, This Property Is Condemned--a Tennessee Williams' classic. I had to check it out! Not much info about the movie inside, but beautiful Mardi Gras costumes on display and some history about the depot and Katrina destruction.

Visited on a rainy day on a whim. Old L&N Depot that serves as a Museum for the paintings of folk artist Alice Mosely. Nice place to go in a pretty town.
