The fun, free attraction provides an educational, immersive experience showcasing the culture, food, music, and outdoor adventures to be had in Southwest Louisiana as well as tips for getting the most out of the Creole Nature Trail experience.
Through imaginative, hands-on displays, visitors can learn the best places to spot alligators and migrating songbirds, take a peek at wildlife found in bayous and marshes, smell mouthwatering aromas of Cajun/Creole cooking, and “play along” with a Cajun and Zydeco band.
The newly-opened attraction offers visitors from around the world an opportunity to sample a taste of what they can see and do in the area, while interactive exhibits highlight the unique estuary system of the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road, one of 42 All-American Roads in the United States.
The facility is located at 2740 Ruth Street, south of the Sulphur/Creole Nature Trail, Exit 20 on Interstate 10. Hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
