It was a great visit on a windy winter day. The place offered more than I expected. A lot of sources of information packed into very pleasant forms. The theater was nice. It almost like we visited a nice museum instead of a visitor center.

This is an above average visitor center with local history thrown in. It is in a beautiful new building along the beach. They have all the visitor info you need, a large display of local history and a movie on the second floor.

Such a beautiful building, lots of information to look at about the area, and they run a movie about Katrina's impact on Biloxi. Worth the trip.

Good place to bring the family for a decent vacation. We have been there 4 times this year. The only downspot at all was the Beau Rivage...terrible terrible customer service. VERY unfriendly staff. Thought we where going to be carjacked in parking garage. Terrible...terrible...terrible! AVOID!!
