Beautiful scenery, so much to see. Very nice venue for events but parking is an issue. The outside area is very nice in fall or early spring otherwise very uncomfortable

We came to the Shaw Center for a wedding. What a beautiful venue with a view of the Mississippi River. We got a little lost trying to find our way around inside, but the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Lots of different artistic styles housed in an interesting building with great views across the Mississippi River. Great to see a place like this specialising in the arts right in the middle of downtown.

The whole center is very nice especially the Manship Theatre. The deck on the third floor is a great vantage point for the July 4th fireworks show. The Manship is cozy with excellent acoustics. Do not forget the soushi and rooftop deck on the top.

The terrace is large with numerous seating areas and plenty of room to grab a spot by the railing to take in a beautiful sunset. This a very romantic spot and would recommend for... More

While visiting family in Baton Rouge, a cousin suggested a visit to the Shaw Center. I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at this LSU museum. The exhibit was small but interesting and was featuring an artist who is currently serving on the faculty at the University. His modern art was in real contrast to the rest of the exhibits... More

This is the perfect place to visit for small concerts. There are no bad seats and the sound quality is perfect. Little over 350 seats and no one will feel left out.
