Abita Mystery House
John Preble, artist and creator of the Abita Mystery House, accepts all types of found material ( some may say junk :-) ) and builds dioramas, arranges things in collections, and covers the ceilings and walls of a maze of small buildings that comprise the museum. There are hundreds of paint-by-number canvases; arcade and pinball machines; buttons to push; and old and new signs – an amazing jumble of stuff. Parts of the museum could use some sprucing up.
Surprisingly the aisles are wide enough for wheelchair access. The only things that are not accessible are an old aluminum trailer and a small shed housing a collection of hot sauce.
RVs will fit in the parking area along the side of the museum. Museum 30.47742, -90.0363
