The Tupper General Merchandise Museum is located in Jennings, Louisiana, which is between Lake Charles and Lafayette on I-10. This museum has two parts. The first section in the front of the museum is literally a store that closed in the late 1940's - with thousands of items displayed as they were when the store closed. Your enjoyment will increase as you spend more time looking at this store’s amazing inventory.
The second part of the museum is in the back and is the Louisiana Telephone Pioneer Museum. This displays telephone equipment used throughout the last century. It is also very fascinating!
People from all ages will enjoy the Tupper Museum. Younger people will see items they may not recognize and more "seasoned"' folks will love to see things they may have used when they were younger.
Whether you are headed east or west on I-10, take a break from your driving and exit the interstate at Jennings and allocate at least an hour to visit the Tupper Museum. It is located at 311 North Main Street, which is also a quaint street. You will literally be transported back in time!
