  • I stopped in yesterday when I was wandering around downtown. It was amazing, the lady at the desk was really sweat and gave me information for other great things to do in the area. It was sad though, I was the only person there. I wish more people could go in and experience the history of the bayou and it only $3. I mean take an hour out I your day and take the kids to see it, they would love it!
  • Lovely place to have an event.Ms. Pearl was very helpful with everything.
  • Great history museum. Good way to spend a couple of hours learning about the bayous and coastal fishing life of Terrebonne Parish.
  • Great little place. Very interesting.
