  • Wonderful cultural gem for our community! Fantastic place to bring family and friends. Their annual fundraiser is absolutely fabulous with amazing night views of our State Capitol.
  • Nice cultural exhibition of La parishes and music reasonable prices offering senior discounts.
  • So interesting to learn more about Louisiana history. Fun for kids and adults too!
  • Fun museum showing off Louisiana. Bottom floor has history of the Louisiana purchase and top floor has Madi gras, country music, and different cities located in Louisiana.
  • I wish I could give this 6 stars. We weren't even planning on visiting this place, but a volunteer at the New State Capital suggested it. It might be one of the best Museum visits I have ever had. I don't even have much interest in the history of Louisiana, but this was unbelievable. Cost is $6 to get in, but it is more than worth it. They take you through the Purchase, through the various wars, Huey Long, Satchmo, life on the river, history of slavery and food production. They have a full size shrimping boat and combine. That is all on the first floor. The second floor is a walkthrough the various regions of Louisiana with details about the various music, festivals, celebrations, customs, traditions, languages, etc. It was so well done and put together. I can't compliment this place enough. We are planning a second visit because we ended up taking so much time in this place and we still felt we could have spent another hour. Go see this place. Amazing.
