    The Louisiana state exhibit museum is fantastic. The dioramas and Exhibits are intricate and very interesting. The museum displays items dating back historically to the founding of our country, and continuing in a linear fashion to the present day. There is also a lot of agricultural history and detailed displays showing methods of Mining and farming, Etc used over the last hundred years. We went through the museum in a very leisurely fashion and it took us two and a half hours.

    This museum has excellent displays on the history of this state. A great mix of science and history is prevalent. The displays are very stimulating and have a lot of knowledge and insights to offer.
