Southdown Museum is located in the city of Houma in Terrebonne Parish, where 86 sugar mills operated during the industry’s boom years. The last operational mill in the Parish was the Southdown Mill, located adjacent to Southdown Plantation House. It closed in 1979 and was dismantled and shipped to Guatemala, where it was reassembled for continued operation. Plantation life and the sugar industry are just two of the many topics explored by the exhibits of Southdown Plantation House/The Terrebonne Museum. In addition to the museum displays, the House itself, through its architecture and design, reveals information about life in South Louisiana. The current pink and green color scheme was selected by THACS to reproduce the paint colors of 1893, as discovered by expert paint analysis during the restoration.
The Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum preserves and promotes the area’s long, colorful, and historically important connection with the seafood and water transportation industries; as well as other wetlands and water based hunting, gathering and mining occupations. The Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum ranks as one of the area’s most unique venues . The museum, its exhibits, and charming back porch overlooking the bayou and serene bayou-side park offer unlimited options for those interested in a first-rate facility.

Regional Military Museum
Our museum is dedicated to the brave men and women throughout our country’s history who have defended our great nation, at home and abroad, so that we may live in freedom. To these great men and women, we owe a debt of gratitude. The goal of the Regional Military Museum is to commemorate their sacrifices made in behalf of all Americans – past, present, and future. The museum is not a static, but a living history. The vehicles really run, the weapons really fire, the library acts as a place of research for both family military history as well as educational instruction. The veteran volunteers offer first-hand accounts of what it was really like to lay one’s life on the line to protect our loved ones and our way of life.
Be sure to dedicate time and go to the Jolly Inn, not just for authentic Cajun food.
