A nice place to visit if you've never been. It gives you the history of Tunica and the surrounding area. No charge for admission.

Delightful little museum and very helpful staff (volunteers?). Could use some help updating displays, but for this "old" couple, it was fine. The biggest "perk" was the staff's suggestion we have lunch or supper at the Blue & White Cafe.

This will take you back in time and is well worth going through. If you know little of the South and primarily the Delta of Mississippi,you must for sure stop and visit!

I needed a break from the casino when the funds got low. So I went toward Tunica and got some lunch then happened upon this little gem. It's bigger than it looks and they pack a lot in. It was very interesting.

An illustration that there is more to some towns than the obvious, may be a casino town to most people today but it actually had an interesting history that is not seen today.
