Bayou Teche Museum, New Iberia

(4.6/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Step into the Bayou Teche Museum to explore one of the country's most colorful, bountiful and historically significant areas. Fun for the whole family, interactive exhibits showcase the spicy blend of cultures, artists, industries and lore that sprang from the land surrounding the snake-like curves of the peaceful South Louisiana bayou.

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.
