The Welcome Centers in Mississippi are attractions unto themselves, each built to resemble the antebellum structures for which our state is famous. Each is beautifully decorated with fine antique furnishings from the period. Neatly manicured grounds feature picnic tables and grills, RV waste disposal facilities, 24-hour security, restrooms and weather information. Motor coach parking is available, as well as complimentary refreshments. The Welcome Center staff stands ready to answer any questions you have, and can even help with lodging reservations. Regular hours at all Welcome Centers are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
The Adams County Welcome Center is located inside the Natchez Visitor Reception Center at 640 S. Canal Street in Natchez, Mississippi, the oldest settlement on the Mississippi River.

Amenities include: Natchez Orientation and history exhibits, including maps, models and photographs; a 75-seat theater for a 20-minute film about Natchez; visitor planning and ticket purchasing area; bookstore and gift shop offering Natchez merchandise; and a sky ramp viewing area overlooking the Mississippi River.
