The museum/research centre is beside the Red Cap motel we stayed at. It was raining so we decided not to visit Le Village Historique Acadien. However, the tiny museum proved to be a very educational experience. It's packed with artifacts but displayed professionally. For those interested in reading up on Acadian history (as I am) the gift shop has numerous books.
I lucked out and spoke to an older gentleman from Massachusetts who spends summers doing research at the centre. His parents were Acadians who were born here. It was fascinating to have him and the young fellow who works at the centre talk about Le Grand Derangement (The Big Upset) when the British deported thousands of Acadians in the late 1700s.
This a a very worthwhile visit.
