“Free, Outstanding displays, something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We were overwhelmed by how much there was to see in this free museum! A great place to start your visit to LA if at all possible. So much information on the entire state's history, culture and present day. Clean and spacious and very modern. Expect to spend several hours and still miss many displays.

“An outstanding glimpse at Louisiana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The relatively new state museum in Baton Rouge ranks among the best of its kind in the nation. Exhibits are organized by theme rather than chronologically and cover a myriad of topics, ranging from the 1815 Battle of New Orleans to Mardi Gras. There is a nice mixture of artifacts, label copy, and participatory exhibits. Highly recommended!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

It's a great start to learn more about Louisiana, its history, culture and people. And best part of it - it's free!
