Jeanerette Bicentennial Park and Museum is at 500 E. Main St. (SR 182). The museum, in a 1902 cypress home, depicts life along Bayou Teche. Established in the bicentennial year of 1976, the museum's exhibits focus on area history, in particular the sugar cane industry. A sugar cane patch and a vintage sugar mill are on-site, and a 12-minute film shows how sugar is made. Other displays of interest include the Swamp Room with specimens of native wildlife, turn-of-the-20th-century furniture and a Mardi Gras room. Educational presentations are offered. Guided tours are available.
