Abita Mystery House Also known as the UCM Museum is a roadside attraction in Abita Springs near New Orleans. It is a folk art environment with 1000s of found objects, and home made inventions. Tourists see a miniature Southern town with push-buttons that activate animated “displays.” On exhibit are odd collections, memorabilia, pure junk, and old arcade machines that are fun to play. Abita Springs, Louisiana is a historic small town known for its brewery, spring water, and bicycle trails.

This place is absolutely amazing grew up going to this place with many friends and family members. If your into antique collectibles, art and historical context all from an otherworldly perspective this is a place for you. The joint is cheap and often times especially first timers free!

The best! Go! If you are anywhere near New Orleans, just make sure you don’t miss this place. It’s just one of those places that you have to see. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see Darrel, the Dogigator? It’s just a few dollars to get in and you take a self-guided tour, so you can stop and take as many pictures as you want...because believe me, you’ll want to take a lot of pictures. The owner was super nice and let us bring our dogs in! All four of them! They are well-behaved, but that was really the best. Then after we were done we told him were heading to Austin and he told us that we HAD to check out a certain restaurant while we were there (which we did and it was delicious!) Basically, this place is one of a kind, in the best way possible and it run by great people!

What a fun attraction! I love American folk art and Abita Mystery House does not disappoint. Don't come in a hurry. There is lots to see.

Quirky art museum! Touch and press buttons to make the displays come to life. Bring some quarters with you so you can play the random arcade games sprinkled throughout the grounds. The only place in Louisiana to see a 32 foot alligator!

My family really enjoyed our visit here. We loved this collection of oddities. Hope to go back again soon.
