Acadian Cultural Center

The Acadian Cultural Center in Lafayette is one of six sites in south Louisiana that makes up the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.  The Center tells the story of the Acadians deportation from Nova Scotia and resettlement in Louisiana through exhibits, photographs, and artifacts.  A 40-minute film—“Echos of Acadia:  The Cajun Way”—chronicles the Acadian story from the beginning to the present.
