The Abita Springs Trailhead Museum is a quaint, one-room museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the history and culture of Abita Springs. It is owned and operated by the Town of Abita Springs but, for the most part, is run independently by its Board of Directors. There are no paid employees.

We are always looking for docents willing to volunteer their time during open hours, which are 10am-4pm Fridays and Saturdays; noon-4pm on Sundays during the Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market just outside the museum in the Park. If you have a group that would like to come for a visit, please give us a call or send an email.

If you would like to be considered for serving on next year’s Board of Directors, please let us know. The public is welcome to attend any Board meeting.  They usually occur on the last Tuesday of each month at 5PM at the Museum.  And we are always looking for volunteers to serve on the following committees:  Programming, Development, Push Mow, and Whole Town Garage Sale. Join us!
