The Brimstone Museum aims to preserve and enrich the culture of Southwest Louisiana through its permanent exhibits that feature the history of the sulfur industry as well as its role in the development of the City of Sulphur in Louisiana.
The Museum also features the Henning Cultural Center that houses exhibits focusing on cultural traveling across the country and within the City in order to impart the knowledge and experience to the residents of the city and the whole region.
The Museum is housed in the Southern Pacific Railway Depot, which used to be used by ferry passengers and freight going to the sulfur mining community of Sulphur Since the depot fell into a state of disuse, volunteers worked on preserving the building. Five years after, the Sulphur Association of Commerce bought the building from the Southern Pacific Transportation Company for $1. It was required to be moved to a safer location, away from the railroad tracks. On December 5, 2005, the Museum was officially signed over from the Association of Commerce to the Brimstone Historical Society. Today, it features artworks from local artists as well as historical facts that enlighten visitors on the community?s past.
