  • This museum is more of an art than science museum. The science section was pretty small. The planet display was nice, but it was basically in stairwell. There was quite a bit of art. They were having ...  more »
  • This is a small museum with interesting displays of art and history. The planetarium is also included in the price($9). Several things for the kids to do and good movies on nature and history.  more »
  • Funny Museum. A part dedicated to the children who seem to appreciate it. Another part dedicated to the contemporary painting (especially Louisiana artists). Another part on ancient Egypt and finally, a part dedicated to the planets and their explorations. The last two parts are mostly theoretical since there is not a lot of artifacts. Well anyway, but rather limited. Good with children... Not too long and with a few more spectacular articles (Mummy and kind Imax film). About 1:30 (2 h and + with children). 1st Sunday of the month; entry free (not including Imax film) and free parking (Sunday) if not $9 adult.

  • It was the best! Wonderful activities for all ages not one dull moment!
  • The museum is very nice, and very clean. The staff are all kind and nice to the children. The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars is that the city of Baton Rouge put no thought into parking for this facility. In order to get there I drove around for almost 30 minutes looking for parking. Driving around looking for parking with a careful of young children is not fun. I came very close to finding an alternate outing. Once parked we had two very busy roads to cross. My 4 year old granddaughter witnessed a tractor trailer rig coming within 2 seconds of crashing into the rear of a car that suddenly turned left in the intersection of the pedestrian crossing. The driver then went into a cursing rage with the windows rolled down. Not exactly the wholesome outing I was seeking. I feel certain many do find alternatives for the children, and this is a substantial loss to this amazing museum. This is not New York city folks, we all have cars. In addition, I think the prices are too high for the children. Of course, if more people came perhaps they could lower the price.
  • The exhibits were great!
  • Love this place great exhibits !
  • The whole family loved it. The information is unbelievable and amazing. There are scheduled films and documentaries and the set up of the theater is set up very unique. Also, there are experiments that you can sign up for free to do with you kids to have hands on learning. A Must See!
