The People. The History. The Culture. The Industry.

Your front door to the magnificent Bayou Teche region!

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.

Historic, Charming Downtown

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. New Iberia is also the hometown of the late Blue Dog artist, George Rodrigue.

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.

UPDATE!!!
The Bayou Teche Museum has made the prudent decision to postpone our Annual Gala scheduled for January 20th. With the current surge in new Covid infections, and considering how well-attended the party is, it only makes sense to wait for a better time. The Gala will now be held on Wednesday, April 20th. Postcards announcing the change will be in the mail shortly! We truly can't wait to see everyone again so that we can "Party Like We Used To"!
Please call us if you have any questions or concerns.

Just have to convince everyone to get their shots!

We are all learning to be nimble in these challenging times!

Great idea to wait for later in the year.

Yes great idea later date

Good decision. See you all in April.

Let me know if you still need volunteers—-

There is home testing these days, so the official numbers don't include those. It's bad.

Very smart👍🏻♥️
