OLD and very very run down. This place is truly only for the most hardened history buffs. The A/C routinely goes out here during the Summer and it gets HOT.

This museum had lots of interesting dioramas, artifacts, and things from LA. There was a lot to see. The parking was plentiful and it was free to get into.

I went to the museum for an art exhibit but it had been a while since I had visited. It is really a hidden gem for Shreveport.

This is a must see museum if you are new to Louisiana. A wonderful mix of current and ancient history. Exquisite dioramas and a great collection of artifacts. Best of all - it is free. Don't miss this one
