to the museum.
WE are glad you are here!
Whether you're a local or a visitor to the area, we'd like to welcome you to Lockport and to the Bayou Lafourche area of Southeastern Louisiana.
Located in the heart of Lockport, Louisiana, the Bayou Lafourche Folklife & Heritage Museum is a non-profit organization which exists to preserve, promote, and interpret the human history, cultural heritage, natural history, arts, and folkways of the Bayou Lafourche region.
The museum is currently closed due to the impacts of Hurricane Ida in 2021.
Our hours will be updated when we reopen to the public.
Our all-volunteer staff has established an interactive, three-dimensional exhibit entitled Bayou Excursion: 1910 to interpret life along Bayou Lafourche--"the longest Main Street in the world."
