a lovely Spring Saturday afternoon was spent in this quaint setting! The buildings were very interesting and the grounds were very pretty. The craftsmen in several of the houses were knowledgeable about their crafts and the history of the buildings!

Okay, I had grown up in Louisiana and never been to Vermilionville, but now living in Texas I wanted my son to experience what Cajun culture was about since he has some Cajun ancestry. I would rate this as the highest star rating possible, if I could give 100 stars I would! When we went, they were doing an egg... More

We visited during a sunday afternoon, and had time to look around the village which is really interesting with excellent exhibits. The added bonus was that Chubby Carrier was playing the pavillion during the afternoon, and the place was full of people dancing to great music in a family atmosphere.We were welcomed as if old friends, and just joined in....

We mainly went to this place because of the Zydeco band (Dikki Du & the Zydeco Krewe) playing that afternoon. The band and the music were awesome and it was great fun to watch the people dancing. It felt like we were part of a big piece of the Cajun culture. We also walked trough the village and it was... More

Wow! If you like history and culture, you'll absolutely love this place! I was a little luke warm about going, but my sweet little wife convinced me (even though I am a history buff and love to learn as we travel). I am so glad we went. The displays are awesome, with lots of historical artifacts from the area and... More

If you are into culture, do this. If you don't care about history or culture, blow it off. For me, I loved it and got to speak with artisans about things I care about.

Lots of history here. We took a guided tour though some of the buildings. All of the guides and craft persons were very knowledgable. Movies in the theater were worth seeng especially if you are not from the area.

We visited the Vermilionville complex on a chilly day in February. The facility is very nice and the displays of historical architecture were very interesting. I especially enjoyed the reinactors who put on quite a show for visitors. Just like having someone from the 1800s open their home or business for you to visit. Not too big and not too... More

Vermilionville is a very nice open air historic Acadian village. It's not too big so you can easily walk through the whole village and visit all the houses. Most of them have people in them in period clothing who can provide a lot of information on the history of the place. We were there on a Sunday and were very... More
