The Acadian Cultural Center is a National Park Service site in Lafayette, LA. It is close to the airport and NEXT DOOR to the Vermilionville acadian village. Some people have said on here that Vermilionvile and the Acadian Cultural Center are one in the same. They are not, although they compliment each other and neither are to be missed the Vermilionville village charges admission. The Acadian Cultural Center does not. The Acadian Cultural Center is open Tues- Fri 9-4:30 and Saturday 8:30- 12. tHE ACC IS CLOSED SUNDAY AND MONDAY Vermilionville is open Tues - Sunday 10 -4. VERMILIONVILLE IS CLOSED MONDAY.
The ACC shows a film on the Acadian exile from Nova Scotia every hour, on the hour,starting at 9 and last show starts at 3. Yes, they do not close until 4:30, but a 4 o'clock film is not shown because there simply is not enough time for the almost 40 minute film before they close at 4:30. so make sure you get there by 3 if you want to see the show. It is a nice place. The rangers are very friendly and helpful with directions and things to do while in Cajun Country. This place is a great jumping off point for your stay in Lafayette. I would reccommend you visit, see the film, and explore the museum and the artifacts within.
