New Iberia sits in the heart of Cajun Country yet it is the only remaining city in Louisiana to have been founded by the Spaniards.
The Bayou Teche Museum mission is to educate the public about the Bayou Teche and its environs, to preserve the history and culture of New Iberia, and to emphasize the industries that have shaped the region.
The Bayou Teche Museum is located on New Iberia’s award-winning Main Street, downtown next to the restored Evangeline Theater.
