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.

Called in on our way from memphis to clarkesdale. Spent about 40 mins wandering around - could easily spend much longer looking at the exhibits in more detail. Easy to park outside - museum all on one floor. Purpose built. This is somewhere where you feel local people are proud of their heritage and have acquired lots of artefacts to... More

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.

Worth a stop. Lots of information regarding the Blues Trail through Mississipi, friendly staffers who can answer most of our questions or point us in the right direction. Interesting keepsakes for purchase.

I now know more about cotton than I need to know. I have seen bales of cotton, Donkey drawn carts of cotton, a video of how cotton was the #1 source of revenue here in Mississippi and everything related to the production of cotton. Enough! It is an informative adventure and good learning experience to learn about what used to... More

A somewhat disorganized mish-mash of artifacts that looks like they were moved from a small, underfunded site into a casino funded new building. Needs a professional curator to add context to the wide assortment of things.

We just stopped by as we were driving past. Two hours needed to see all. It is free, donations are necessary as no group helps them.

Excellent glimpse of early Tunica county. From the early eighteen hundred through present day including the establishment of riverside gaming. It includes a wonderful presentation of the wildlife in the Mississippi Delta. Also is a history of Tunica countians who have fought for our country from the civil war to present day.

Located in a very rural area, near many casinos but not nothing to rave about, would not visit again.
