The gallery has an outstanding bronze and art collection as well as 40 plus acres of azaleas, Japanese Maples and other flowering bushes. The gardens have many sculptures tucked in here and there plus many benches where you can sit and enjoy the peace. The gallery is closed on Monday but the gardens are open.

My wife and daughter go there on a regular basis to see their flowers as well as art. Spring there is amazing and they circulate artwork often, but not too often to see favorites a time or two! My daughter (now 4) loves the flowers and there are some areas for her to play while my wife and I enjoy... More

I really enjoyed the history at this place. It has some much to offer and the best part is it is free. They have a good bit of art from different periods and their firearm collection is awesome! They literally probably have billions of dollars worth of art. Many different types of art: classical, abstract, local artists, dada, and even... More

I'm from Dallas and was not familiar with this museum/gallery. (It's called a gallery, but it is really a museum.) I first heard of it when I learned that the International Guild of Realism has a display there in June and July 2015. The building is the size of a football field. The grounds are gorgeous and there is a... More

This is a wonderful little museum that may family and I have enjoyed for a very long time! The gardens are fantastic and the exhibits are amazing. Lots of Louisiana history and many traveling exhibits from other museums. A must-visit staple of Shreveport!

You can't beat the price! (Free) Lots of neat stuff. Be sure to take a walk around behind the museum and enjoy the fabulous landscaping if the weather is nice.

We've been here a number of times but always try to catch the various traveling exhibits. The permanent collection includes paintings by a number of famous artists, doll and gun exhibits, and quite a few western sculptures and artwork by Remington. The grounds are quite beautiful with a large number of different species of plants and flowers, really gorgeous this... More
