Expérience fantastique: I came looking for the Mulatto Cemetery and could not find it. Evidently, the museum has it pointed here because it is in an odd spot. I went ahead and did the tour, and I am so glad I did. Very informative. Small museum. Evidently, they have lectures, French lessons, school field trips and so much more here. Their Facebook page has the list of events. They have a conference room for groups. There is a small room in the back with items from the WWII museum in New Orleans about WWII Veterans from this area, and the different ways the area contributed to the war effort. In the front behind the docent's desk is a chronological history of the area from before the European settlers to now. Now for the impressive part. There were many sugar refineries in the area, started with the plantations, and then grew. Well, in the middle of the museum is this replica of the mechanical process of the refining of sugar that was made in 1903 and donated to the museum. It lights up as a narrator highlights the beginning to the end of the process. Freaking amazing. The grounds are beautiful that are around the museum, and there are several buildings that I wish I could have seen.

Expérience fantastique: Andre was our guide at the museum, and he did a fantastic job in explaining the history of sugar mill, work at sugarcane plantation and other artistic offerings at the museum. It’s a lovely museum that punches above its weight. Andre also showed us the house of the plantation owner, slave quarters and store, and explained the artifacts and history behind them. This museum is a surprising find, that should not be missed. My children and I enjoyed the tour of the museum a lot.

Expérience fantastique: We visited the traveling "Picturing Nam" photograghs. I only wish it had been larger. We went with someone who served there. He slowly shared a few stories, and I saw the war from a much better and different perspective. I thank the sponsors and all who donated items. It provided a little healing!!

Expérience fantastique: This is an excellent place to take the whole family! They're a small museum, but they really care and the exhibits are in depth and interesting! It's an amazing place to go during the sugar festival (first weekend in October), so indignant. At Christmas you can go and see Papa Noel with one of his alligators (it's a pool inflatable, no real gators here! ), with extensive informative about sugar cane and the history of the area. Great place to visit! If you're a WBR resident it's free!

Expérience fantastique: Went with my daughter's 1st grade class here. I had been here years ago, hadn't been back in some time. They've added a lot new exhibits, etc. It's very clean, lots of great information about the town of Port Allen. The staff was great in engaging the children and keeping their attention. Sampling the sugar was exciting and taught the kids about the different types of sugars grown here. I'll definitely go back.
