Like other reviews, liked the renovations. Now its finally modern and cozy. The exhibits were above average and wished we got there earlier to see it all. Would go back again to see other performances.

Beautiful building. A great place to see a performance - very up close and personal. Always interesting exhibits. Very supportive of the children of Acadiana, love Gulf Brew. Wish that their exhibits turned over more frequently

I love the art in the ACA and have come here when they have a new exhibit for the past 6 years.

short (30 min) film explains the history of the Acadians (aka Cajuns), their persecution and exile from Canada and their eventual settling Louisiana. Very well done and informative

This is a wonderful place to spend an evening. They have a wide variety of musical and cultural events presented in a small, intimate setting. It's frequently possible to get student pricing, depending on the event, so it's worth investigating even if money is tight.

Price of $5 was OK, but really needed more art to look at.
