  • This is an excellent place to take the whole family! They're a small museum, but they really care and the exhibits are in depth and interesting! It's an amazing place to go during the sugar festival (first weekend in October), so indignant. At Christmas you can go and see Papa Noel with one of his alligators (it's a pool inflatable, no real gators here! ), with extensive informative about sugar cane and the history of the area. Great place to visit! If you're a WBR resident it's free!
  • A venue not to be missed! Family friendly. Nationally recognized. Louisiana Sugar plantation life from the mid 1800's. Well preserved buildings on 6 acres beautifully landscaped accented with 150 year old live oak trees. Interesting timely rotating exhibits
  • Went with my daughter's 1st grade class here. I had been here years ago, hadn't been back in some time. They've added a lot new exhibits, etc. It's very clean, lots of great information about the town of Port Allen. The staff was great in engaging the children and keeping their attention. Sampling the sugar was exciting and taught the kids about the different types of sugars grown here. I'll definitely go back.
  • Excellent museum with several original local outbuildings.
  • My children, my mom, and I enjoyed exploring the old houses of yesteryear.
