Step into the Bayou Teche Museum to explore one of the country's most colorful, bountiful and historically significant areas.

The Bayou Teche Museum is located on Main Street in charming downtown New Iberia, recognized by Forbes Magazine as America's Prettiest Town and immortalized as the home town of James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux. Local cuisine, historic sites, shopping and hotels are all within walking distance. And be sure not to miss the beautiful Bayou Teche, just steps from the museum's doors.
