Fodor's Review

Directly behind the Acadian Cultural Center, this living-history village re-creates the early life of the region's Creoles, Cajuns, and Native Americans, focusing on the late 1700s to 1890. On select days, visitors can see a blacksmith demonstration or watch weavers at work. There are exhibits in 19 Acadian-style structures, including a music hall where live Cajun or zydeco music is played on weekend afternoons. A large, rustic restaurant serves Cajun classics. Check ahead for live demonstrations from the on-site cooking school.
