A History of the River Road African American Museum

After visiting Oak Alley, my friends and I headed up the River Road to the River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville. The door was locked when we arrived, so we called the phone number listed on a note taped to the door. The founder of the museum, Kathe, answered and showed up a few minutes later to let us in and show us around. It's a four-room museum in a house, but it is packed with a lot of information about African Americans who have lived in the River Road area over the last 200 years or so. We watched some of the videos and looked at the exhibits, and Kathe chatted with us for awhile, which made it an especially interesting stop. She is very passionate and we all really enjoyed speaking with her! There's a suggested donation of $5, but we didn't feel any pressure to put money in the box and ended up giving more than was requested. I definitely recommend this museum for anyone who is exploring the River Road area.
