A joint effort of four community service organizations in Vermillion Parish in Louisiana, the Vermillion Arts Council, the Acadian Center, the Vermilion Historical Society and the Giant Omelette Celebration has formed and maintained a remarkable museum and art gallery that houses works of art, genealogy of the Acadians, historic documents, photographs, artifacts and exhibits from international Omelette celebrations.

Responsible for the Art Gallery portion of the Alliance Center, the Vermilion Arts Council continually sponsors diverse displays of authentic artworks of international and local artists. The council is also responsible for art lessons and workshops for children and host the Carousel of Arts annually that features live displays and performances celebrating the music, art, food, history and culture of Vermilion Parish.

The museum holds the ?Morgan Effigy? which is considered to be the most valuable artifact on display, a carved deer antler which was found in a Native American heap in Pecan Island dating back around A.D 900. The piece of art is considered by archeologists as one of the exquisite illustration of Native American art from the Coles Creek period.
