Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center in Thibodaux, LA

I grew up in South Louisiana, in what is considered "Cajun country".  My kids love the culture & food, and I try to teach them about the Cajun life whenever I can.  So while on vacation in Louisiana, we visited a local museum which was full of Cajun Culture, The Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve's Weltands Acadian Cultural Center in Thibodaux:

Learned about sugarcane:

My daughter loved the fancy Mardi Gras gown:

After touring the little museum, we walked along the bayou and visited with some ducks.
