Acadian Cultural Center
Ranked #6 of 54 things to do in Lafayette
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Visiting the Cultural Center before you tour Vermillionville is a good idea. The Cultural Center is the museum loaded with all the information you need to understand their lifestyle. Then you can tour the buildings at Vermillionville. We enjoyed the film playing in the little theater. It told the story very well. The staff is very helpful and informative.

We wandered into the Cultural Center right after we arrived in Lafayette. We began asking the staff about what other cultural things were going on in the city, and they told us to attend some of the events being held in Vermillionville for "Balfa Week". That suggestion made the trip. We spent the rest of our time dancing and taking classes right down the street from the Cultural Center. The Center itself is very well laid out, and explains the Acadian diaspora, their history and struggles very clearly. My suggestion: talk to the staff. They are a font of local information

I suggest visiting the Cultural Center before Vermillionville. They both complement each other, but the Cultural Center is the museum loaded with all the information you need to understand the lifestyle before you tour the buildings at Vermillionville. We enjoyed the film playing in the little theater. It told the story very well.
The staff was very helpful and informative.
