I spent about two hours and did not see a single visitor, on a Saturday afternoon. It is a pity, because it is a superb museum, from the museography viiewpoint. One learns a lot about Louisiana history, the obvious like the sale of half a continent by Bonaparte for $15 million, and less known (at least by me) such as... 更多
One of the best museum's I've seen. The staff are great - super friendly and helpful. The museum itself is really fun and entertaining - not stuffy. I've taken my kids several times and they always enjoy it. Every time we go, we see something we missed before. It's one of the greatest assets of Baton Rouge!

I lived in Baton Rouge most of my life and visited this museum for the first time a few weeks ago. It was a great experience.

I was also happy to see that we'd visited many places featured in the museum including New Orleans and Poverty Point and would soon be headed to Natchitoches. The exhibits were bold and... 更多
A great place for children of all ages. There is always something fascinating to see at the LSM in BR. My children just love going here and it expands their mind on so much.
