The Museum is currently closed due to the effects of Hurricane Ida. We are planning to reopen sometime in 2023.

Bayou Lafourche Folklife and Heritage Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to the mission of preserving and sharing the history and cultural heritage of the Bayou Lafourche region.

Our all-volunteer staff has established an interactive, three-dimensional exhibit entitled
"Bayou Excursion: 1910" to interpret life along what has come to be known as "the longest street"--Bayou Lafourche!


The Bayou Lafourche Folklife and Heritage Museum is grateful to the National Endowment for the Humanities and Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities for providing and administering grants to repair damage to our building in the wake of Hurricane Ida. This includes the 2021 Disaster Mitigation Grant, which will provide for the repair of our museum's roof.
