    We really loved visiting Houmas House. We loved that there was a lot of original pieces in the house and the historical information we learned was great as well. The grounds were absolutely beautiful!

    This place reminds you to the scenes in the movie "Gone with the wind".
    The rooms are extraordinarily decorated; the hosts are very friendly and caring although still learning to get to the high level of a B&B classic place, but they will get there.
    This place is a much better experience than a regular hotel and worth to inhale the atmosphere of the Mississippi area.

    The Great River Road Museum didn't exist the last time my wife and I visited this part of the Deep South. Located at 40100 Highway 942 in Darrow, Louisiana, next to Houmas House and Gardens, the 30,000-square-foot facility was opened in 2020 to give visitors a glimpse of the history and life along the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, to explore river life on the east and west banks of the lower Mississippi River. Open from 10 to 4 daily, the museum covers the transportation, culture, commerce, folklore and music of the region. It chronicles the people and families who helped build Louisiana's most lucrative corridor while creating the unique culture which is Louisiana, from wealthy plantation owners to great sugar empires to humble lives of the enslaved to details of how each lived and survived and how the Mississippi River affected the lives of those who lived along its banks. See informative displays and exhibits on the early explorers and settlers, native tribes, maps and surveys, the Louisiana Purchase, slavery, ships and steamboats, free people of color, industry, art, literature, music, the Civil War and Reconstruction, plantation and river life, communities and towns, folklife and folklore, transportation and commerce, flora and fauna, period fashions, paintings, sugar cane, B. Lemann & Bro. Department Store and Louisiana photographers. There is so much to see. It is a wonderful educational experience for children and adults.
