This museum has something for everyone. It has great science exhibitions, as well as art by regional artists. The exhibitions are continually changing, so who knows what you'll get to see. It's well worth the trip.

Liked the information and history. It did not have any information about hurricane Katrina yet. It was free so a great stop to spend 1-2 hours at. Do not miss the third floor as that was as enjoyable as the first.

very nice little museum about the history of the acadians and louisiana and the time periods. if you want to learn about louisiana this is the place to come. it even has a shrimp boat inside. it has a 1st and a 3rd floor. 1st floor was better than 3rd floor but all in all it was very nice with alot of artifacts in it. we were pleasantly suprised and the best thing about it it was free.

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.
