What is there to do?

It's all about stepping back into the history books at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, where life in this great state during the 1940s comes back to life through exhibits, dioramas, and artifacts!

Why read a history book, when you can live it in person!

The Louisiana State Exhibit Museum is living history before you even step through it's doors. Have a look at the building before you walk in. It's an architectural jewel, and at the time of it's construction in 1939, it was considered ultra-modern!

Inside, you can explore the 23 beautifully rendered scale dioramas, that give you a sense of what life was like all those years ago. The museum also houses Louisiana Native American artifacts, as well as natural history artifacts, original work by local artists, as well as exhibits showcasing more of the natural history of the area. 

When checking out the dioramas, you can learn all about a range of events that shaped the state to how you know it today. From agriculture, to industry, and natural resources, you can learn about oil production, and rice harvesting, just to name a few. 

The Native American collections showcase an amazing range of Caddo and Poverty Point artifacts, and kids can learn about the archaeology that went into these discoveries.

Perhaps there is an Indiana Jones in the family waiting to find their inspiration!

The Natural History displays are great learning experiences, and pretty cool ones at that! You can see a prehistoric petrified mammoth tusk, to the insects that roam the state, to cut-aways of the land so you can see the geology in more detail!

A super fun and fascinating museum for the family, the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum is a family day out you might just keep repeating again, and again - who says learning isn't fun!
