The museum is housed in a beautiful Art Deco style building and is beautifully maintained. There are extensive exhibits about the history of Louisiana, famous native sons, and about anything else you can imagine about the state. The dioramas are very well done, as are all the exhibit here. The museum is free and well worth a stop.

This is a nice little museum and has a lot more than I expected inside as it's free admission. Don't pass up on the small history lesson for the best price: FREE!

Free museum in a beautiful building, it doesn't get much better than that. The inside has the stereotypical history stuff, but the wholly mammoth tusk & the Indian canoe exhibit stands out! Also they incorporate student art contests that are on display. Nice to see a museum get involved with the community

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.
