AAA Editor Notes
Tunica RiverPark Museum & Interpretive Center is in Tunica RiverPark next to Fitz Casino; go 10 mi. n. on US 61, 1.8 mi. w. on SR 304 (Casino Strip Resort Blvd.), n. on Fitzgeralds Blvd. and then w. to One RiverPark Dr. In a strikingly contemporary building across a Mississippi River levee, the museum depicts river history, ecology and the economic impact the waterway has had on the area. Aquariums feature examples of native river species, and interactive exhibits include a simulated diving bell. An ecology trail and an outdoor observation deck with rocking chairs are relaxing ways to view the mighty Mississippi.
