----Update as of November 2022----TOURS of the MUSEUM ARE CLOSED
BUT...our Gift Shop & Office are OPEN M-F 10AM-4PM
Our main building, the Plantation House (Museum) is still UNDER REPAIR. We hope to be able to open our Museum for tours in Spring of 2023. However, please stop by and visit as we have several areas of the grounds and buildings that are of great interest to tourists. Our Gift Shop building is the oldest structure on the property and all of our visitors receive a FREE Mini Tour there.
The museum received extensive damage during the hurricane and we are working hard to get it back open as soon as possible. Our Event Venue is fully operational for hosting Buquet Pavilion and outdoor events. Please visit our Contact Us page for info. Visit our Marketplace page for more information on the craft shows and visit our Event Rentals page for information about your upcoming event.
Southdown Plantation/Terrebonne Museum – A 19th century sugar plantation manor house, filled with antiquities and historical items.
Fully-guided tours of the House and Slaves Quarters are available. Self-guided tours of our Workers’ Cabin also available.
We were short on time.. So this was the closest plantation house to us.. It did not disappoint. The tour guide was great and he didn't rush us through. We got a private tour and really enjoyed it. Def. Stop by!
