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.
