  • Such a great little museum about the history of the area. I wasn't aware of much of the history of the bayou or the city itself and this gave a great in depth view of how it came to be. The welcome film in the old movie house ticket box was cool. There is also a recreation of the Rodrigue Blue Dog studio from his personal collection. There's a section dedicated to the author James Lee Burke as well. For $5 you can't beat it.
  • Wonderful ladies that work there. Very interesting and informative. Glad we have something like this in New Iberia.
