Lafitte's Barataria Museum and Wetland Trace
Discover the 200-year-old history of the town of Jean Lafitte at Lafitte's Barataria Museum and Wetland Trace. Begin your journey with a theatre presentation that tells the story of the people who call this historic fishing village home. Then visit the kid-friendly museum with exhibits on Pirate Jean Lafitte, folk traditions, the wetlands environment and coastal erosion and restoration. The museum features animatronic figures as well as historic artifacts and a wildlife specimens collection.
