My for kids and I went here and our minds were blown! My kids age range from 7 to 14 and it was entertaining to all of them! The planetarium shows are awesome and the Egyptian exhibition was a great surprise. Well worth the money!

We visited the museum during the free first Sunday offer. I was glad it was free because honestly I would have been rather irate had I paid to visit the museum. The planet displays were not working properly, the planetarium was a disappointment. I was excited to take my kids, 3 and 2 but there was little for them to... More

The museum is very small and the exhibits are too. Not much to see, but while IN Baton Rouge do support! Perhaps with paying visitors it will change and become a great place like the ART INSTITUTE?? Perhaps.

Went to here as we were touring around Baton Rouge downtown. Great time! The movie was good and a lot of space to look around and a some really good rooms for kids to learn.

Fun place to visit. You should definitely see a planetarium show when you go. The area around the museum is beautiful. Some of the stuff in the science exhibit needs to be fix as some of the buttons/lights don't work.

Anyone with a student ID gets in free - which is good to know, because this museum is terrible and I would never spend money on this place. It's a wonder that children are inspired to study science at all with museums like this one lying around. Despite saying "SCIENCE" in large letters on the outside of the building, only... More

From the outside the LASM appears to have great potential. The actual product, however, feels incohesive, cheap, and ill-contrived. The bizarre combination of art and "science" comes off as highly incongruous. The art exhibit itself was interesting enough, displaying the fruits of some renowned local artists. The science portion, on the other hand, was supremely disappointing. If I'd paid the... More

This is a nice little museum. I had thought it would have more to share, but it's pretty tiny. Staff were helpful.

Would definitely check out the planetarium show. Not too much other exhibits. The Egypt exhibit is interesting.
