“Worth A Visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This museum is worth a visit, very nice grounds. There are much better examples of the old plantation houses up on the Mississippi but Bayou Teche is also interesting.

“Great little museum with friendly and knowledgeable staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

I grew up in New Iberia and was thrilled to finally get the chance to visit the Bayou Teche Museum. It provided great history into the area and brought back great memories. This area is home to some of the greatest people in the world. It is nice to have a museum dedicated to them and is truly worth a visit to give you a greater appreciation of the origins of their traditions and how the bayou itself formed the geographic backdrop of the area's successes.

“Charming little museum”

Wandering around New Iberia we decided to stop in here. They have made the best of highlighting their history. The salt mine is not to be missed.

“Enjoyed art work and film”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

Before touring Shadows on the Teche we watched a short video about the history of the place. I enjoyed this because it's hard for me to stand for long periods of time - would much rather sit and listen than standing in house on the tour. Bought a nice little painting in the gallery and a child's book in the souvenir section. Had cookbooks, postcards, art for sale. Very nice.
