The museum building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the highlight of Gueydan's Main Street. It was built in the Romanesque style that was popular for public buildings at the turn of the century. 

The museum's permanent collection houses rare photographs and cultural artifacts from the Gueydan area. Also on display are a collection of French antiques which were given to the museum by descendants of the Jean Pierre Gueydan family, one of the founders of the town of Gueydan. The museum is an exceptional attraction for those interested in learning about local history.

In addition to the museum's permanent collection, changing exhibits highlight area artists, craftsmen, photographers, and topics of local and historical interest.
