The Atchafalaya Heritage Area has been designated by Congress as a National Heritage Area.
The Decorative Arts collection encompasses furniture, ceramics, glass, metals, and folk art objects. Its emphasis is on Louisiana-related artifacts from 1790 to 1890. The museum looks to expand its 20th-century collections as well as those artifacts related to under-represented groups in Louisiana history.
