Jeanerette Museum, also called LeBeau Petite Musee' (The Pretty Little Museum), preserves the history of life on the Bayou Teche.  Housed in the quaint, early twentieth century Desire Guilerteau home in the heart of "Sugar Town", the museum offers a video presentation on the planting, harvesting and processing of the 200 year old sugar industry, complete with an outdoor sugar cane patch. 

Visitors learn about the regions, African American legacy and Mardi Gras. "The Swamp Room" features over 40 biological specimens.  Experience an old paymaster building, a two-seater outhouse, an old fire truck, cane cutters and vintage farm equipment in the Bayou Teche annex.  You will view a pictorial history of Louisiana's sugar can industry, with photographs and relics of the once booming cypress industry.

Don’t miss the best kept secret along the banks of the Bayou Teche.
