Atchafalaya National Heritage Area Competitive Grant
The Lafayette Museum received an Atchafalaya National Heritage Area Competitive grant through the Atchafalaya Trace Commission, a program of the Louisiana State Department for Culture, Recreation and Tourism. This heritage interpretive grant funds interpretive improvements allowing funds to update the museum’s introductory film that enhances the experience of all visitors. It also gives the museum the opportunity to update its French film and printed materials and allows the addition of a Spanish film and printed materials. The French and Spanish materials provide educational opportunities for schools with Language Immersion programs. The Lafayette Museum is grateful for funds provided through the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area Competitive Grant.
