Create an itinerary including Vermilionville
A living history museum, Vermilionville explores Louisiana's Cajun culture in a recreated 18th-century village. You can make your way around the 9.3 hectare (23 acre) site yourself or with the help of a tour guide. In the village, historical houses dating from 1765 to 1890 are accompanied by mock period structures. Many are occupied by costumed artisans practicing Acadian and Creole skills like spinning, dollmaking, and woodworking. You can find some of their finished products in the gift shop. Complete your visit with a trip to the on-site restaurant for some traditional Cajun cuisine.
