What is there to do?

Want a place FILLED with fun exhibits and activities that can allow kids to have a great time AND learn some pretty amazing things? Why, that sounds like Louisiana Children's Museum!

This fun museum for kids has been entertaining those active minds since 1986, and with 30,000 square feet of exhibits and programs there certainly is a lot to fill those family days out!

All of the exhibits were designed to ensure kids the maximum learning and development, whilst allowing them to really engage, interact, and have a great time.

They will develop skills across a wide range of topics, from reading, maths, and everyday life.

Want to hear some of the very cool exhibits that kids can enjoy at the Louisiana Children's Museum? Let's go!

Kids - have you ever wondered what made your body work? Well, just head to the Body Works exhibit where you can climb to the top of a mountain peak, watch your skeleton move with Mr Bones himself, and learn all about what's good for you!

Simple Machines is all about gears and pulleys with fun activities to test your strength and learn how physics work. For those creatives in the family, Art Trek is a working art studio where kids can explore drawing, painting, sculpture, and even screen printing!

Dr. Pepper is calling....he wants to examine your eyes! Or rather, let you see how animals see! You can put your eyes through the eyes of the cat, or catfish, perhaps the rabbit or the honeybee, and see how they see the world. Pretty amazing!

From a real Kids Cafe where a future chef might be born, to a grocery store or even a place just for those under 3 years where they can crawl, climb and explore....there is SO much to do at the Louisiana Children's Museum!

Who's ready for an adventure!
