“Downtown, Modern Simple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We got stuck downtown in between lunch and dinner so decided to give it a look. Its only $5. This place combined with the Acadian Cultural Center should give you a pretty good feel for the Cajun Culture. 1 to 1.5 hours and you have seen it all. We liked the Cajun timeline exhibit. Nice small gun exhibit if you are into that.

Kids enjoyed their time at the LSM. We had went for the dinosaur attraction. It was informative and well displayed. Would go again. Price was reasonable.

“Wish there was more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The LSM is an okay museum. It's clean & the workers are pleasant. There just isn't enough in it. It's content is small for such a large building & it doesn't take long to go through it. It would be nice if it had more exhibits or science experiments, or just more of anything, in my opinion.

The display museum was great, but the IMAX (dome screeen) astronomy presesntation was very informative and interesting. The presentation was given with much enthusiasm and detailed knowledge. Highly recommend!
