Hurricane Ida has caused damage to their building at 519 Huey P. Long Avenue, however, NO exhibit items are damagedThe museum will remain closed for the time being as the parish determines the extent of repairs. Because of these issues, we have decided to cancel our Oktoberfest Beer Garden that was planned for October 9. 


The GACC interprets the German immigrant contribution to Louisiana, from 1720's to present,  through exhibits, lectures, programs, and other educational activities. Exhibits depict the colonial experience, immigration, world of work, culture, religion. An additional exhibit panel features *culture in crisis* during the two world wars.

The GACC sponsors special events with a Manifest on the grounds outside the Center and an Oktoberfest Bier Garten. It also provides a genealogy & research room, which includes, church records, computers, websites, and many other research materials.

The GACC is supported and operated through memberships in the Friends of the German-American Cultural Center and other fundraising activities.
