  • The movie was great and the museum was very well done...a nice blend of the written word and pictures, in color and black and white and a lot of 3 dimension...  more »
  • The Museum is not very big but the exhibition addressed all facets of Acadian and cajun culture. Do not miss the film of 20 minutes, under titles in french on request, who poignantly tells the story of these settlers of the Canada. I was very touched by this film that justifies only visiting this cultural center

  • Immediately greeted once we came in and given a rundown of the Cajun history, so thumbs up for that. Also the guide gave us all the information to everything we were curious about. Great little store and I loved the video that they had about Acadia. Good place to go to learn Lousiana's history.
  • The film that plays every hour on the hour is the main draw. It gives you all the background on how the Cajun people got to Louisiana.
  • Free admission to displays and short film about Acadian migration from Navy Scotia and life in south Louisiana. Welcoming staff members are eager to provide answers to questions and advice about the displays.
  • So very neat, lovely, educational. I felt like I wemt back in time. I loved taking my young boys here to visit.
  • Good place to learn about Louisiana history and the great deportation of 1755. A must, and it's free!
