Discover history in a whole new way! The museum provides guided and self-guided tours and events for educational groups of all kinds – including teachers and students, historians and more. Museum staff tailors guided tours to the needs of each group. For example, exhibit themes can be integrated into identified goals and classroom learning standards. These fun and hands-on programs educate about any aspect of the Bayou Teche region.

Education programs tie into one of the museum’s core principles – the Bayou Teche Museum’s mission is “to educate by collecting, preserving and interpreting artifacts and oral histories, both historic and contemporary, that reflect the life of the region.” Schools can interact with exhibits in creative ways, and the resulting student projects can be displayed at the museum for the community’s enjoyment. The goal is to spark enjoyable, lifelong and historically-minded learning.  Please call or email to schedule an educational tour.

  • Bayou Teche Museum

    Step into the Bayou Teche Museum to explore one of the country's most colorful, bountiful and historically significant areas. Fun for the whole family, interactive exhibits showcase the spicy blend of cultures, artists, industries and lore that sprang from the land surrounding the snake-like curves of the peaceful South Louisiana bayou. The Bayou Teche Museum is located on Main Street in charming downtown New Iberia, recognized by Forbes Magazine as America's Prettiest Town and immortalized as the home town of James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux. Local cuisine, historic sites, shopping and hotels are all within walking distance. And be sure not to miss the beautiful Bayou Teche, just steps from the museum's doors.
