Germantown Colony Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful grounds. Interesting museum and buildings. The tour guide is very knowledgeable.

  • This place is perfect. A beautiful representation of a 19th century German commune in the countryside of northwest Louisiana. The person who runs it is an absolute gem, very knowledgeable on the history of the Germantown colony. The scene is very picturesque, with the old 19th century structures against a background of pasture and pine forest. It is very well run and maintained, and am definitely looking forward to another visit to this beautiful site!

  • Friendly director. Lots of personal attention. The colony has an interesting story. Museum is free. Contribute to its foundation! Needs the assistance of an historic restoration professional.

  • Very nice place. Good tour and shows the story of a magnificent people.

  • Fun and unexpected bit of history in northern Louisiana. I am a German speaker so I enjoyed being able to read the books and papers in the museum. We were the only visitors at the time so we got undivided attention and lots of explanations.
