The food at this location is good quality; however, it is a little pricy. The inside setup is the best and most classy place in town. During summer, they offer outside music with a quality food setup at a great price. The only real downside...More

We enjoyed the all-too-brief time we spent at Vermillionville. It is indeed a delightful recreation of Acadian life in the 19 century. The village consists of restored and newly constructed models of Acadian buildings, including a church, various houses, a blacksmith shop and others. All...More

This is a fantastic place to visit in Lafayette. It's a recreation of an old Acadian village complete with a few "residents." Entry fees are nominal. There are traditional Cajun musicians in the schoolhouse, a wood carver in one of the homes plus gardens and...More

We enjoyed on a lovely day. Each house is well explained. as to how it is different because of time period or builder. The pull-yourself ferry was fun.

I am sure this would appeal to people wanting to learn the history of the area. However the heat made it a very uncomfortable place to visit. The live music was good but I would not rush back.

My recommendation is to not go on a Sunday. We wanted to watch their movie so we could learn all about Vermillionville. They don't show the movie on Sundays. We thought they would have Cajun music or some music representing the music of Vermillionville but...More

The area is a park and you can take you dog and walk there but, they are not admitted to the historical buildings inside unless service dogs.

I do not recall seeing pets, but there was an alligator sitting on the riverbank - if you do take the dog keep an eye on it!

There is ample parking, but there are many steps. Steps into the main store and gallery, down steps to get into the village, up steps to get into nearly every dwelling, and then down steps again to get out of each dwelling... More
