Also on the National Register of Historic Places is the University of Louisiana Performing Arts Museum in Lafayette, home to the Louisiana State University Performing Arts Center.

Sylvester Francis founded the museum when he became interested in the history of Louisiana music and its history in the late 1960s. Founded in 1987, the Museum of West Louisiana preserves a collection of over 1,000 Louisiana artworks and artifacts from the early 1900s to the mid-20th century.

More recently, city leaders and other community members have worked long and hard to make Cajun Prairie Wildflower Habitat one of Louisiana's most popular tourist attractions. Join us in establishing the Caj un Prairie Wildflower Habitat at the New Deal National Historic Landmark in New Orleans. Recruit volunteers to collect seeds from the residual strips and plant them at recovery sites. In addition to nurturing local talent, locals also run regional "New Deal" programs, including Newcomb's instructor, Ellsworth Woodward, who directed the Gulf Coast arts program and alternately heads the Louisiana section of the Federal Arts Program.

Spread over two floors, there are other museums to visit - including an exhibition documenting the history of Cajun Prairie Wildflower Habitat and Louisiana Crows at the New Deal National Historic Landmark in New Orleans, as well as exhibits about the Mississippi and its history.

In February 2012, the program included a visit to Louisiana State Park and its museum, as well as a tour of Louisiana's largest public park.

The curators of both museums were very hospitable, so we could explore the wide world of Cajun music and history simply by visiting. He was also instrumental in the restoration of the Eunice Depository Museum and helped to collect and catalogue the many relics of Eunice's history that were kept there.

Note: If you decide to visit the museum on a Saturday morning, you will have the opportunity to listen to local musicians in the museum. We visited Rendez - Vous des Cajuns, which was playing at the Liberty Theatre in downtown Eunice every first Saturday of the month from October to December. Back then, Downtown EunICE was a place to listen to a variety of local music, from jazz and blues to country and country. 1985-86 she and her husband and son Charles and Janet Seale worked on the reopening of the Liberty Theatre as a concert hall for the local community and local artists.

One of the most important stops in Eunice is certainly the Liberty Theater, located on the corner of East Main Street and East Ninth Street in downtown Eunice.
