“Nobody home”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We drove over to tour this museum and it was closed. The days and hours for this museum were posted on the front and it should have been open. We walked around the main building and couldn't find anyone around. We then walked around the outbuildings, which were very colorful, and took photos.

“Nice Family Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We enjoyed touring the museum and grounds for the special Christmas day open house. The Christmas treats of gingerbread and hot apple cider made it more special and we enjoyed a short play in one of the homes. Great for families!

“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Great museum of West Baton Rouge culture and history. Historic houses, furnished with period antiques and artifacts. Delightful working model of sugar cane refinery. Worth a visit.
