Small. Only a coupe bucks to get in but you will only be here for 30-40 minutes or so. A few of the exhibit features don't work well and introduction movie kept freezing. Not really worth it.

This is a museum that would be of benefit of both young and old. It promotes the area's historical and cultural ties with seafood and water industries. It shows how folks make a living from the vast amounts of water found in Louisiana.

I went there out of curiosity. The small museum displays artifacts, of course, but is mostly pedagogic, and it fulfills its mission faithfully.
