Description

Louisiana cultures comes to life in the new Bayou Country Children’s Museum. Located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, this hands-on museum will provide the type of recreational learning experience desired by parents and educators and have a lasting impact on child development. For children, play is a critical way to find out about new things. The ability to play is instrumental in scientific exploration, discovery and creativity.

The museum will provide children ages 2-12 years with a unique learning environment that enhances the classroom experience. Most exhibits will correspond with established Grade Level Expectations and further inspire teachers to include more hands-on activities in the classroom.

The museum will be opened year round, offering a climate controlled, unique environment for affordable good family fun. It will also include a unique gift shop called the “Bayou Boutique,” a fun and colorful space that features gifts for children of all ages. Here shoppers will find souvenirs from a trip to the BCCM as well as educational toys and unusual better quality gifts that relate to the museum exhibits and activities. The museum will offer party rooms that can be booked for birthdays, etc. and will include admission to the museum for party guests. Refreshments are restricted to the party room and may be contracted through the museum.
