We read about the Cultural Center in a pamphlet that contained information about activities in and near New Orleans. So we took a chance and went there. We were not disappointed! When we arrived Ranger Rodriguez warmly greeted us and introduced us to what we can see and do at the center. She suggested we might want to start with... 更多
Interesting artifacts and information about the cajun culture. They have a small museum, books and a knowledgable guide to help you with questions you may have.
The staff of Acadian Cultural Center know all about the history and architecture of the area. Museum has great artifacts and cultural pieces. Every couple of months the community, Thibodaux Playhouse, produces a Broadway play in the theater.
Do not miss this museum. It is an excellent explanation of the Acadians that we all need to know about. Almost forgotten, it is remarkable as to how much the Acadian and Cajun cultures have influenced what America is and has become. As a group of 19 international media, it took coming to this museum for many of my colleagues... 更多
It was interesting to visit this national park museum. We particularly enjoyed seeing the video "Echoes of Acadania". We did not know a lot about the history of Acadian people before the visit, and now we do. You can ask to see the video at the desk, they will help you with that.
We visited to see how they covered the Acadian presence, as we came from an Acadian area too. They incorporated the Canadian experience too!! It was easy to understand and follow, with many displays and short stories, including the music of the Acadiens. A gem of a stop if you have any interest in this hearty group of trvellers!

Although the Acadian Cultural Center is small, there is a lot of information available and the Park Ranger was a warehouse of knowledge. There is also a small theater where the National Parks Service has videos available on... 更多
Very friendly staff. We had scheduled the boat trip which was cancelled because of too few visitors. This was disappointing, but not their fault. The museum is nicely done, but small. Worth a visit if you are in the area to get a better idea of the interesting Creole and Acadian culture.
Visited this small museum as part of a trip to see the Plantations. The museum is run by the Park Rangers and provides an excellent history of the Acadian people and culture. Cost is zero with a voluntary donation bin. The place doesn't advertise itself widely but is worth the effort if you are visiting plantations nearby. It is around... 更多
