Learn about Acadian, Cajun, Creole and Native American culture at Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park. Step back in time at this Acadian settlement by touring original structures from 1765-1890, and reproductions such as La Chapelle des Attakapas, a schoolhouse, homes and more. Artisans in period costume demonstrate and host workshops on spinning, weaving, soap making, woodworking, boat building, and music, and rotating exhibits examine the history and culture of Louisiana. Stroll through the Healers Garden surrounding La Maison Acadienne to see medicinal plants commonly used in Southern Louisiana. Get your feet two-stepping and tapping every Sunday afternoon, as the Vermilionville Performance Center hosts a dance featuring live Cajun, Creole and Zydeco music. Spring and summer boat tours on Bayou Vermilion are offered in conjunction with the national park service at Jean Lafitte Acadian Cultural Center. Advance reservations required. There is an entrance fee and a separate fee for the boat tour.
