“Backdoor to the Blues”

Gateway To The Blues Visitor Center & Museum
Ranked #6 of 26 things to do in Tunica
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 8, 2014

I expected much more for the Gateway to the blues visitor Museum. In fact I must have completely overlooked the museum portion for I saw nothing but cheap tourist trinkets normally available in every store on Beale Street. I expected to have at the very least someone who would talk about the vast history of this building or give information about the Blues trail markers that started at their front door.

What I found was 2 women who only wanted to take your cash for the merchandise that they peddled. This is NOT a good look for the Gateway to the Blues.

This former train depot is truly a very unique visitor center that introduce the richness of the blues in the Mississippi delta.
Since I often travel this direction, just admired the center,but never stop. However on route to tour with relatives, made the stop.
I consider this more a visitor center. There are a few items on display,but not a true museum (which is in the works). Information on all areas of Mississippi, not just the Blues trail is available. The staff is welcoming and helpful.
The bathroom is very clean.
Also it's a great photo op for any visitor.

My mon and I have driven past this place several times, but were never able to stop, so my boyfriend and I went to Tunica, I had to go! It is mostly a visitor center, but had few blues music related items on display. We were able to get some information for our visit.
