If history is your thing, like it is mine, you can experience it here. This is a living history museum as good as any I've visited. Nice café, too.

You can spend half a day or more viewing the cabins of the time and interact with the people performing the functions of the day...a school teacher....a quilter....a seamstress...etc. The food at the restaurant is Cajun perfect.

Are dogs permitted? We have a 5 pound toy poodle who would be carried.

I do not recall seeing pets, but there was an alligator sitting on the riverbank - if you do take the dog keep an eye on it!
I am traveling with an elderly person who is still somewhat mobile. Will there be a problem with parking and much walking. Are there places to sit between buildings to sit and rest?
