  • This is a wonderful play. I went here many times, theres this thing in the museum that tells us how much would we weigh on another planet. 
  • I took my 5 and 7 year old here to see the magic tree house show at the planetarium. We thoroughly enjoyed it! On the plus side, the museum entrance fee gives you unlimited access to all of the shows ...  read more »
  • small but perfect.... triceratops worth the visit... lovely statues and art... Great Warner Bros. display. 
  • 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 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!
  • Great place to bring the kids. I used to have a blast here on school trips when i was younger
  • Love this place great exhibits !
  • The exhibits were great!
