Oak Alley Foundation Education: Bayou Country Children's Museum


Oak Alley Plantation Historic Grounds and Gardens will reopen its doors to the public beginning Saturday, May 30, 2020.  The grounds and exhibits will open at 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with the first visit of the "Big House" exhibit beginning at 9:30m and the last visit at 5pm.


Foundation staff members participated in the Bayou Country Children's Museum's summer education week. Staff members Bob Barrios (Historical Interpreter) and Gary Dauphin (Director of Technology, Education, and Media Production) presented to four groups of young learners, discussing topics from Creole life to sugar cane farming to 1800s-era transportation. The children were excited, and Foundation staff enjoyed supporting the education programs at Bayou Country Children's Museum in Thibodaux.
