The New Canal Lighthouse is Louisiana's only remaining working lighthouse. The small museum located inside the historic New Canal Lighthouse is extremely well-thought-out and very informative. You'll learn the history and science of the Mississippi Delta region, Lake Ponchartrain, Lake Borgne, and the importance and impact of these coastal waterways. Guide to NOLA highly recommends a visit to this museum as one of the best ways to understand our region's fishing industry, bayous and waterways, and lakes. You can visit the museum either as a self-guided tour or on a docent-led tour.
