Located in the heart of Gretnas National Register Historic District, settled by German immigrants in the mid-1880s. The GACC interprets the unique German immigrant contribution to Louisianas history 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 Maifest on the grounds outside the Center and an Oktoberfest Bier Garten as part of the Gretna Heritage Festivals three day event during the first weekend of October each year.
