"The Zigler Musem was created in 1963 by the late Mrs. Ruth B. Zigler widow of Fred B. Zigler, Jennings industrialist and philanthropist. She donated the property which has been the Zigler family home since 1908. It was enlarged by the addition of two gallery wings.

Colorful and realistic Southwestern Louisiana wildlife dioramas are housed in the East wing. The West wing contains an excellent Fine Art Collection by European and American artists. A rotating exhibit is displayed in the central galleries throughout the year. The year ends with the annual Christmas Festival, featuring a wide array of trees and decorations throughout the museum."

What a great asset for Jennings! The Zigler is worthy of a stop for I-10 travelers with an appreciation of art, Americana, and/or southern work and folk traditions. It is off Hwy. 27, four blocks south of the Hwy. 90 intersection, then east about a block. Among the 19th and 20th century paintings of workers, musicians, gentry and landscapes is... More

Love the Cajun subjects in the museum. Great place to bring the kids to see what this area was like and what people have contributed through the years.
