  • First of all, I love free things. Second, I love history. This place is clean, well preserved, informational, & interesting. We spent a LOT of time here, considering it’s relatively small size.  more »
  • This is operated by the state of Louisiana and needs more signs to help you find it. The guide was so nice and took her time to show all the exhibits to everyone who came. The museum is only open...  more »
  • Beautiful grounds. Interesting museum and buildings. The tour guide is very knowledgeable.
  • This place is perfect. A beautiful representation of a 19th century German commune in the countryside of northwest Louisiana. The person who runs it is an absolute gem, very knowledgeable on the history of the Germantown colony. The scene is very picturesque, with the old 19th century structures against a background of pasture and pine forest. It is very well run and maintained, and am definitely looking forward to another visit to this beautiful site!
