We went here to watch the short 48 min. documentary about Hurricane Katrina and it's affect on the city of Biloxi and how the people have rebuilt following thew worst devastation to hit the area since 1954. It was excellent. We were also amazed by the room that held the story of Biloxi's history in pictures and words. Learned much... More

Surprisingly good exhibits gave us a feel for old and new Biloxi. We weren't aware of the impact of several groups of immigrants on the area. The building is impressive and the staff quite helpful. Good view of the lighthouse from the lawn. We felt the visitor center is well worth a stop.

It's more than just a place to pick up pamphlets. Really interesting place to visit, along with background information for all the surrounding area. Located directly across a beach area, the town's acclaimed Lighthouse.

I have never seen a Visitors Center like this one before. The exhibits are very interesting and the staff is helpful and friendly. They even made coffee for us while we were there.

Don't leave Biloxi without going to the Visitor's Center. It looks like an old building, but it is really a new (8 months or so) building that is built to look "old." The movie about Katrina hitting Biloxi full-force in '05 is well-done...one leaves the theater amazed that any of the town is still standing! A drive along the coast... More

We were in town on a gambling junket. Decided to get out and see some town. Easy walking distance from the Beau Rivage. Very friendly and more interesting than you normal throw off visitors center. The tower is cute. Can't go up in it though. Worth the trip for sure!

My husband and I stayed in Biloxi the first weekend in April for our anniversary. We were told by a local to check out the visitors center. It is located across from the lighthouse, which gives the place a wonderful view, besides the beach. The staff there was so nice, and even gave us a little walk around and history... More

It was in a good location down HWY 90. They even had a Documentary on Hurricane Katrina that was about an hour long. It was nice to go in there and look around. I found it interesting.
