Opelousas Museum and Interpretive Center Review

This museum traces the history of Opelousas from prehistoric times to the present. There's an exhibit on the town's brief stint as state capital, during the Civil War, and a collection of more than 400 dolls. The museum is also home to the Louisiana Video Library and the Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival archives, and rotates exhibits of artists every three months.
