Just in the north side of I-20 is the welcome center. Great place for a photo stop, picnic or get a good view of the mighty Mississippi River. Clean bathrooms and an interesting history inside. Very nice place to stretch your legs and get a good photo with the kids of the welcome to Mississippi sign.

I wish we'd had longer to visit Vicksburg! The welcome center was like an invitation to learn more. After looking at some of the displays and reading various plaques, my husband and I stood there, imagining the Civil War seige that took place there. We both thought we would like to go back there and learn more on a future... More

The views of the Mississippi, barges and bridges from the Welcome Center are terrific. It was one of the better Centers we stopped at on our four week road trip for tourist information, etc. There are also cannons on the nearby hill that you can climb up to. All in all a great stop.

My family was quite surprised at how beautiful the scenery was from this Welcome Center. It sits on a hill overlooking 1 beautiful bridges with great views of the Mississippi River. You can walk to a casino from the welcome center. There is also a small military park if you walk up the "walkway bridge" to it. Just terrific views... More

Stop in here! Great view of the two bridges over the Mississippi River. There's a hill across the parking lot with great views of the river as well.

Visited on a Sunday hoping to find information out about outings we were interested in. We were given more information than expected while enjoying the grounds & overlooking MS River, bridges & R/R tracks.

We stopped here for a real quick visit on our way through Vicksburg heading east. All of the employees here were so nice to us, and one lady staff member in particular went out of her way to make us feel so welcome. She found out what we were interested in, and then she gave us maps and brochures of... More
