  • Great place to learn about the Acadian origin and culture. As an immigrant, it is important to learn the history of the people that welcome you so you can understand them better. I shared this experience with my mother, we loved it!
  • This was a nice day tour. I liked how we could approach any building within at our own pace. The animals were great to see. The food we sat for was very tasty and well worth it. The people are very nice and this stop was very worthwhile.
