Visited on the first Sunday of the month, so it was free. Looked like a lot of kid oriented stuff. Large exhibit of fashion things from Project Runway lead by a Louisiana resident designer that had been on the show. Interesting Egyptian exhibit. Planetarium part was a bit run down.

This museum was interesting with some history of Louisiana art. It is a nice way to spend a few hours. Bonus is that it is free.

I came to LASM for the first time ever today and it will definitely be our last. We were in downtown Baton Rouge for a family Sunday afternoon and had planned to see the dinosaur show at 1:00. Since this was the first show of the day we bought tickets at the station in the main lobby. The lady was... More

This place is nice. Gives you history lessons and shows you artifacts. But what this place really needs is NEW EXHIBITS. I have been coming here for YEARS, and it's the same stuff over and over. The planetarium is amazing, too, but they show the same stuff over and over. They really do need a boost. Overall though, this place... More

located right near the USS Kidd, old State Capitol, and the downtown river walk complex. This a great place to add to your agenda. Park once and you can spend as much time as you like touring several facilities all with a very short walking distance.

There was a lot of things you could not take photo's of ? Could not say it was good of bad. I was not impressed and would not go back. Nothing special here.

Since we were downtown on the first Sunday afternoon, we stopped to check out the Louisiana Art and Science Museum. We were glad that admission was free that day. Maybe we should have paid the small fee to see the planetarium -- we might have been more impressed. The exhibits seemed few, and since we skipped the child-centered activity areas,... More

My son and his family, including two pre-schoolers, and I visited the museum for the afternoon and were impressed with the hands-on children's section. The displays and interactive activities were not only entertaining but also genuinely educational which not all child-oriented museums are, in my opinion. We also had tickets for one of the planetarium shows and the two kids... More

The LASM is a nice museum, especially considering its location in Baton Rouge, but it is very small and can be seen easily within an hour or so. The Egypt section is pretty impressive, as is the Planetarium, but the rest of the museum is rather lackluster. For the price of admission you're better to save your money and walk... More

I had my child's 8th birthday party at the LASM Planetarium. The staff was terrific and the accommodations were excellent. I would recommend it to any parent looking for a good experience.
