Abita Mystery House

This place is a lot larger and more detailed than it looks like from the outside. You could spend an hour in one section and still not see everything, it's so dense. Unfortunately one section, The Shed of Revelations, was closed when we were there. There was also another section under construction, but they at least let you walk through it.

The owner, John Premble, was working the register. and was extremely friendly. Lots of locals were coming by and popping into the gift shop, so the place had a nice sense of community.

John's also trying to open up a larger installation in New Orleans after the success of places like MeowWolf in New Mexico.
