Vermilionville Living History Museum & Folklife Park 

Vermilionville is the largest physical representation of Acadian and Creole culture in the world.  The 23-acre living history, heritage and folklife village on the banks of Bayou Vermilion portrays the cultures of the Acadian and Creole people who settled the Attakapas area of Louisiana between 1765 and 1890.

The museum contains many unique restored historical items and costumed artisans work daily in the park providing an example of how various tasks and crafts were completed back in the early days.

The museum has period homes, bayou boat tours, a nature trail, a hand-drawn ferry, and a gift shop.  Enjoy live music and cooking demonstrations.  La Cuisine de Maman, translated to mean Mama’s Kitchen, serves delicious Cajun and Creole dishes every day.
