The Historic Train Depot, at 1928 Depot Way, which houses the visitor center for Bay St. Louis also includes three very colorful and informative museums and displays. On the first floor, you’ll be enthralled with the intricacies of past Mardi Gras gowns and costumes and learn about famous people, events and contributions to culture that have originated in the area.Upstairs you’ll find an impressive museum showcasing the life and paintings of Alice Moseley, a self-taught folk artist who is often compared to Grandma Moses. The famous blue house, immortalized in a painting, is within a stone’s throw of the depot and is where she lived and worked for a number of years. Her spirited quote on the painting says, “The house is blue, but the old lady ain’t.” The welcome center is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Alice Moseley section opens at 10:00 a.m. Be sure to take a few minutes to drive over to Waveland to visit the Ground Zero Hurricane Museum which resides in one of the only buildings left standing in the town when Katrina made landfall. Quilts made from found fabrics, newspaper clippings, photos and much more tell the poignant story. .
