My family took a tour of the Olivier house and walked through the history museum. There is much to be learned about the history of Louisiana here. Our guide was very knowledgable and we had a good time. The land was very wet from a lot of recent storming so it was mosquito city!

Not to be missed. Better than the National Park in Lafayette. We had a retired prof. as docent for our tour.

I went as part of a middle school field trip. I was impressed with the beauty of the site as well as all of our guides' ability to capture the attention of the students. I can't wait to visit again and have time to really soak in the atmosphere. Beautiful grounds, well preserved houses, very informative guides!

This is a great way to learn the history of both the Creoles and Acadians. After watching a 10-minute film, a park ranger took us to the Acadian side to see a reproduction of an Acadian cottage and how simply these people lived. Then, a costumed guide took us to the Creole side where we toured the Olivier house. Founded... More

We enjoyed the video and small museum. Our tour guide was very informative and perfectly explained the difference between Creole and Cajun. The farm is small and a beautiful place to take a walk.

A very welcoming and easy to visit historical museum. Everything is in English and in French, including the superb video, not to be missed. The plantation house is beautiful, do not miss the guided tour. Take a walk to the Cajun farm, it has so much charm! Watch everything that grows, the beautiful vegetable, enjoy the evocative grounds.

Several acres of land provide for a setting for restored buildings and artifacts to give a look into the past of South Louisiana. The docent was very knowledgeable and gave interesting explanations.

We had a wonderful time learning more about our Acadian heritage! The park rangers at the Creole Cottage and Acadian farm were extremely knowledgeable and we enjoyed the film. It was a wonderful thing to share with my husband, about my Acadian heritage.
