We did the film tour and museum. So much important information about the Acadians and Louisiana History. They don’t teach this in schools anymore.

The State Historic Site honors the French eviction from Canada very well. The guide is a real asset. She spoke French to two French Canadians in attendance. What a wonderful welcoming to French speaking tourists. Longfellow's poem is considered fiction. I am a student of...More

Came here on a Thursday morning. Very clean and neat. Very enlightening about the Cajun and Creole culture. A lot of walking if you are handicapped. Prices for admission are reasonable. Over 62 is free.
