Prairie Acadian Cultural Center

More than a museum, the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center is also a music hall and a kind of public kitchen, where cooks prepare Cajun specialties for the tasting.

Reviewed By AlnAbroad - Baton Rouge, Louisiana

This was a pleasant museum that showcased the Cajun lifestyle in the Louisiana prairies. If you've visited the other Jean Lafitte sites (like in Lafayette) a lot of the elements will seem really familiar, however this is clearly a different lifestyle.

I do with the museum was more up-to-date. The displays end at the "present day" in 1986, so they're missing out on a little over three decades of modern developments.

Liberty Theater

This 1924 movie house is now where a live French radio and TV show is broadcast.

Reviewed By Sylvia G - Warren, Pennsylvania

Good music, nice old theater, fun to see people dancing. Also enjoyed listening to the announcer speaking in French (and English) even though I couldn't understand it.

Savoy Music Center

Mark Savoy handcrafts 77 Cajun accordions a year. More than making instruments, hes preserving a part of musical history.

This is our second visit to the Savoy Music Center. First exposed to several of the Savoy musicians at the N.O. Jazz Fest. I recommend this Saturday experience to anyone wishing to experience an outstanding, unique culture.

Cajun Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Reviewed By AlnAbroad - Baton Rouge, Louisiana

If you already have some knowledge of Cajun music, this would probably be a great spot to visit and learn more. However, if you don't know anything about Cajun music, this is a hard place to start out because they don't have much in the way of signage that explain what it is you're looking at.

However, it's right next door to the Depot museum, the staff is friendly, and the admission's free, so there's no reason not to poke your head in and check it out.

Eunice Depot Museum

Reviewed By AlnAbroad - Baton Rouge, Louisiana

The museum seems like they are more interested in fitting as many artifacts as possible rather than creating cohesive exhibits. Though this makes the museum feel cluttered, there is a lot of information packed into a small building.

I really appreciate small, local museums working to keep their heritage alive. Plus the staff is incredibly friendly and the admission's free, so there's nothing to complain about.

This accordion maker’s music shop hosts a jam session every weekend where the best Cajun Country musicians play.

Reviewed By Bruce W - Holmdel, New Jersey

On Saturday mornings, the shop fills with local Cajun musicians, including members of the Savoy family. We heard old-time fiddle, banjo, piano and (even) triangle players. There were spectators of all ages, mostly from western Louisiana. No charge, but you'll probably be inspired to buy a Savoy CD. The warm welcome here is quite genuine.
While there look at the custom-made accordians. We stayed for three hours.

Free museum located in a converted train depot, which offers an eclectic collection of Cajun music artifacts, a railroad caboose, old Mardi Gras displays and much more.

Reviewed By TrainMan424242

Small local museum with displays and artifacts from the time that KCS passenger service existed in 1923 to 1971. This is a small town so don't expect a lot here, but it was fun and the lady on duty was knowledgeable about the items in the displays. Cheap and easy way to spend an hour.
