Lafitte Barataria Museum & Wetland Trace


The museum is temporarily closed due to Hurricane Ida.


The museum tells the 200-year story of life in the fishing communities along Bayou Barataria. Exhibits explore the people and industries of the region, including the notorious pirate Jean Lafitte, who operated in the Gulf of Mexico in the early 1800s. Louisiana's heritage is on display at this fun and informative attraction. View a film on the region as well as interactive displays. Out back, you will find the bridge of The Black Pearl from the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean.

Don't miss the Wetland Trace. This one-mile raised boardwalk loops through the swamp and wetlands of Jean Lafitte. Spot a gator and enjoy beautiful scenery!

Open Tues-Sun 10am-4pm, $6 admission.
