“One of the top 10 outdoor museums in the world”
Step back in time to pre-industrial Louisiana at this 27-building museum complex, one of the best outdoor museums in the U.S., featuring tools, furniture and other artifacts and, the highlight, a recreated 19th-century plantation that portrays the daily lives of these early settlers.
Such a wonderful find. Didn’t expect to love it as much as we did. So many artifacts from days past. Old buildings literally like they were just left. Not the sterile “museum” setting. Husband loved reminiscing of his grandparent farm. Highly recommended.
This is a great place to stop if you're a history buff. There are self-guided tours across the 40-acre living history Burden Plantation.
Beautiful with great photo ops!
