Shopping at the park's museum stores is not only fun, it's a great way to help support the park. A portion of store proceeds goes to fund special projects and events.

Looking for a button accordion? a Cajun dance video? a Creole cookbook? a history of the Battle of New Orleans or a field guide to local reptiles?

Check out the museum stores at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Each of the park's six sites has items specific to the history, nature, and culture of its location, from CDs by local musicians to handmade dolls to miniature cannons to kids' books about alligators and egrets. Park pins, shirts, ballcaps, and other merchandise are also available.

Bonus: When you shop at National Park Service stores, you get something wonderful to take home---and the park gets a portion of the proceeds to use on special projects. It's your basic win-win situation!
