On a recent visit to Baton Rouge to see friends we stopped here on afternoon. The ground floor level is more like the history in Louisiana and the Upper Level is more of the fun stuff like music, Mardi Gras, and regions around the state. My favorite display was the one on LSU Football and Mardi Gras. It was definitely... More

I love bringing out of town guests to the Louisiana State Museum. The exhibits are bright, inviting and interactive. They really show the rich culture of Louisiana in such a fun way. I've also attended several events (fundraisers, weddings) here and they were all lovely.

We visited the museum not knowing what to expect and thought that it was terrific, showing the history of Louisiana from Spanish and French times to the modern day. But this is not a stuffy museum, it is very innovative and entertaining so much better than many museums. Don't miss this, well done Louisiana.

What a colorful, fun, entertaining museum. This is how all museums should be done. It was visually exciting and you were entertained as well as informed. The displays were creative and many interactive. We arrived at 4:00 and they close at 5:00, and we were able to see it all, but had we had more time, we would have made... More

I love to go to museums! I can't say enough about this museum. WOW!!!! Please do yourself a favor and make this your first stop in Baton Rouge. It has a little bit of everything. The first floor is loaded with information about the history of Louisiana. (politics, Mississippi River, civil rights, slavery, Louie Armstrong and a real shrimp trawler)... More

I took a class full of High School students on a field trip, and even THEY loved it! I will definitely return when I have more time to spend with my family. Bravo to this gem of a museum.
