This is the perfect place to get background info on area heritage. Great little museum with excellent selection of Louisiana books in their gift shop. The ranger we talked with has extensive knowledge regarding the geologic background of the area which was a special treat for us.

A friend and I went on a spur of the moment drive into Bayou country to get out of New Orleans on a recent visit. We pretty much just pointed the car out of New Orleans and went for a drive towards the Bayou country. Stumbled across this place which is part of the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park. There...

We read about the Cultural Center in a pamphlet that contained information about activities in and near New Orleans. So we took a chance and went there. We were not disappointed! When we arrived Ranger Rodriguez warmly greeted us and introduced us to what we can see and do at the center. She suggested we might want to start with... More

Interesting artifacts and information about the cajun culture. They have a small museum, books and a knowledgable guide to help you with questions you may have.

The staff of Acadian Cultural Center know all about the history and architecture of the area. Museum has great artifacts and cultural pieces. Every couple of months the community, Thibodaux Playhouse, produces a Broadway play in the theater.

Do not miss this museum. It is an excellent explanation of the Acadians that we all need to know about. Almost forgotten, it is remarkable as to how much the Acadian and Cajun cultures have influenced what America is and has become. As a group of 19 international media, it took coming to this museum for many of my colleagues... More

It was interesting to visit this national park museum. We particularly enjoyed seeing the video "Echoes of Acadania". We did not know a lot about the history of Acadian people before the visit, and now we do. You can ask to see the video at the desk, they will help you with that.

We visited to see how they covered the Acadian presence, as we came from an Acadian area too. They incorporated the Canadian experience too!! It was easy to understand and follow, with many displays and short stories, including the music of the Acadiens. A gem of a stop if you have any interest in this hearty group of trvellers!
