I've been going there since I was a child. Never get tired looking at intricate dioramas. Very well maintained and offers something for all ages. Handicap access. Free. You won't be disappointed!

We were in Shreveport and decided to stop in this little museum. I say it is average based on size, depth of information and interactivity. It is a unique building and took about an hour to walk the entire circle and really take in the displays. The dioramas are better than average, and do a nice job of telling some Louisiana history. The multiple influences into the state's culture could have been explained fuller, but overall a nice quick summation of major history points. Not much to touch or interactive with, but it was laid out well, clean, staff friendly and worth the hour. We made a small donation upon leaving.

This was an awesome place to go to learn about Louisiana. My 13 yr old daughter and I had a great time looking at all of the exhibits they had. The best part was that it was free.
