Biloxi Visitors Center is a 23,000 square foot facility, which provides visitors with information on hotels, restaurants, attractions, and events. The visitor center is not only a place to obtain information on the area, but it is an attraction in itself!

The rooms in the center are spacious with 12-foot ceilings; flanked on both sides by sunlit parlor-style rooms, the reception desk sits waiting to welcome visitors. The west parlor contains two historic displays begin a 2,500 square foot multi-media exhibit, which continues in the Tommy Munro Gallery, about Biloxi's history and heritage from French explorer days to present day. Visitors get the use of “Audio wands” to listen to the descriptions while viewing the pictures. Continuing the tour, guests can view the show "We are Biloxi," a nine-minute day-in-the-life-of-Biloxi movie in the theatre available throughout the day, along with the showing of "Katrina & Biloxi," a 50-minute documentary shown daily at 10am & 2pm.

Straight back from the foyer is the information corridor. This area has a wall of brochures for the visitors to browse as well as videos about living, working and playing in Biloxi. On the opposite wall is a larger screen showing a live view along U.S. 90 from the top of the Biloxi Lighthouse. Continue up to the second floor where the upper walls show depictions from old postcards of life in Biloxi. Beyond the corridor is a 2,500-square-foot museum that covers the history of Biloxi from the landing of D'Iberville to modern-day life, and using the “audio wands” enhances this visual tour.

While in the staircase area, look around at six of the eight stained glass windows saved after Hurricane Katrina from the original building on this site, the Dantzler House. The other two stained glass windows are part of the conference rooms on the second floor, which also houses the offices of the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce and the Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce.

Don’t forget to pick up a souvenir in the gift shop, where you will find one-of-a-kind items not found anywhere else. And take a moment to sign the guest book in the foyer and enjoy a complimentary cup of fresh coffee. The center also offers free WiFi.
Open Daily 8am-5pm.

The Gulf Coast will officially change from the holiday season to Carnival season on Jan. 5, with the celebration of Twelfth Night beginning at the Biloxi Visitors Center and parading to the Mardi Gras Museum. The occasion also serves as reminder of the religious significance of Carnival, often lost on the tens of thousands of revelers at Mardi Gras parades. Twelfth Night, the 12th day from Christmas, is the night before the Epiphany, the day when the three wise men visited the infant Jesus, foretelling the revelation of God the Son being born as a human.

The Twelfth Night gathering will begin at the Visitors Center, and at 6 p.m., the reigning Royal Court of Gulf Coast Carnival Association will be presented to extinguish the Christmas lights at the Biloxi Lighthouse. The entourage will then board a float and parade to the Mardi Gras Museum, where, at 6:30 p.m., the lights at the Mardi Gras Museum will be illuminated, signaling the beginning of Carnival season.
