Mardi Gras Museum of Imperial Calcasieu

Enjoy the flamboyance and glitz of Mardi Gras all year long at the Mardi Gras Museum of Imperial Calcasieu.  The museum houses the largest dazzling display of Mardi Gras costumes in the world!  It has exhibits of the history of Mardi Gras, king cakes, and costume design.  Climb onto a float and imagine the indescribable fun of riding in a Mardi Gras parade as thousands shout to you, “Throw me something, Mister!”  Animated mannequins tell the story of Mardi Gras and the talking Mardi Gras chickens try to escape being cooked up in a gumbo pot!
