Love the planetarium, not so much the art exhibit

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

My daughter loves to go here and when we don't go for a while, she reminds me about it. There is an iMAX theater inside, traveling exhibits, and great play rooms for almost all ages (my spouse and I play too almost every time we go). There's an interactive science room that is super cool!!!!

A few days ago (8/19/14) I went to this museum and I really enjoyed myself. They had 4 exhibits this time, so not really a huge museum, but nice nonetheless. They have a permanent exhibit that is so much fun to check out, a real mummy! They have it set up so that you walk through a tunnel with cold... More

We went to see the special exhibit of American Brilliant Cut glass which was amazing. This exhibit of silver mounted pieces were among the largest I have ever seen, cut to perfection, and most cased and cut to clear. There was an educational video that accompanied the exhibit. We saw a little of the other exhibits and were not impressed.

This display included some of the largest pieces of cut glass I have ever seen, and most were adorned with sterling silver. Also included in the display was a vintage movie of artisans actually cutting a piece of glass.The pieces came from local collectors and was... More

An " O.K." attraction..but better for children. There was not much open on a Sunday afternoon, so this was something to do.

This is a great place to have a birthday party, bring your children for weekend fun, host a learn night, or just come and explore on your own. The staff cateres to your age groups needs.

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
