The museum has lots to see. So much that figuring out the best path is difficult. It would be nice if a path were marked by timeline or something. Otherwise, it's a great free museum.

Very informative. There was a lot to see and read. The museum covered the history of Louisiana really good from BC to the present day. We wish we had more time to spend there.

You find out so much information. I took my nephew but I enjoyed it as much as he did. Very interactive too.

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.
