The Regional Military Museum exemplifies the Military Pride and Traditions of this area of Louisiana. From the engraved bricks of regional veterans to the personal pride of the volunteer dolcents, who lived the military histroy, military service is honored.

There is a small static exhibit of military equipment but the personal history is in the personable tours. Outstanding! This is a great regional tribute to the 1% of Americans that often made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom.

I've been visiting in Houma for the past six years and the Military Museum continues to improve each year. Take the guided tour.

Pedestrian Bridge

Closed to motor traffic, this pedestrian bridge links two major attractions: Veterans Park and Southdown Plantation.

Reviewed By Runforfunn

If you use the map function it will take you to a parking lot. However, the description states it links the Southdown Plantation with Veterans memorial which we found. Just go to the Southdown Plantation.

It is just a bridge but we did see several turtles. The plantation and the Veterans park was well worth our walk. We were able to take several pictures and spend 30 minutes of relaxing walking time on a nice summer evening.
