  • The garden is a great place to come and enjoy a nice walk and view the flowers. I have been many times this year to vote the azaleas Bloom and they are breathtaking. The museum on the other hand was a different experience. The art was great but the employees bordered on stalkers. There was a mommy and me yoga class going on and so there also was a lot of noise. I love the gardens, but not the museum.
  • The gardens around the art gallery are phenomenal. Their seem to be millions of azaleas in a wide variety of colors. Children love to look for turtles and Koi in the flowing streams and small pools of water. And keep your eyes peeled for the colorful chickens that wander the grounds.
  • I drove 3 hours to get to this museum today as a last minute Spring Break day trip. I had a bit of a delay due to a check engine light, but figured I would still be able to see a lot of the art if I arrived by 4:00, one hour before closing time. I walked in at 4:20 and the first two men who greeted me were extremely friendly and kind. I proceeded to the first room and looked around for only a short time because the security guard was practically breathing down my neck. I moved on to the next room and an older man told me the museum would be closing in 15 minutes (it was only 4:25). I politely thanked him and moved on. One minute later, this same man told me I needed to keep moving because the lights would be off in 15 minutes. I looked at my watch, confused, but moved to the next room. He walked with me, which I thought was odd, but continued to attempt to look at the art. He told me a THIRD time that the museum would be closing in 15 minutes (at this point, it was 4:30). I told him that he has already told me that a few times and he just smiled at me. I asked about the Botanical Garden and he was confused. He told me that there was a water park around the corner, but I needed to leave the building to get to it. I saw this as a harsh attempt to make me leave so I asked for directions to the bathroom before leaving. This man waited for me in the hallway outside of the bathroom! I left the museum and looked for the garden. I thought it was a little strange that photos aren’t allowed in the garden, so I decided it would be best to leave. I sat in my car while looking up directions to get back home. Everyone who was in the museum left in a large group at 4:50 and all of the employees followed five minutes later. If the employees do not want the gallery open from 10 until 5, then the hours need to be changed or someone should have told me to leave when I walked in. I have never seen anyone behave so unprofessionally at a museum. I always experience great hospitality elsewhere. I will definitely be limiting my trips to Louisiana.
  • It's an amazing and organized place I've been there so many times. It makes me feel so calm especially outside.
  • A hidden gem in Shreveport. It's a great place to come and just enjoy the birds and beauty of nature.
