This old arsenal has seen war and peace, and now it is a museum. The grounds are beautiful, and the old brick building is well-preserved. Do not miss the old Indian mound with the cannons mounted on it!
My adult son and I found the history here very interesting and enjoyed looking around. The caretaker is very informative, and gave us the history of the place.

I was wondering what I was looking at from the capitol, and this place really impressed me. For so much to have been destroyed from so long ago, I was gratified to see that it was still standing and being honored by the citizens of Louisiana.

We stopped here while visiting the Louisiana Capitaol Park. The museum is small, but the docent we encountered was well-informed and responsive to our interest. It added to our enjoyment of Baton Rouge.
This is a very small, single room building, filled with (imitation) powder kegs and a handful of small exhibits. The building is actually more interesting from the outside and, because it's right next to the Louisiana State Capitol, it's worth taking the short walk through the grounds to take a look. Don't expect too much though.
my husband can't pass a military museum. I went in to drag him out, of course he wasn't ready. I looked around a little. The dossen was very friendly & somehow we got on the subject of how Huey Long was killed in the Capitol building, it was actually an interesting discussion. Would consider doing some reading on the topic.
It is pretty small but has some old artifacts that are interesting to look at. Just another piece of Louisiana history that people should take the time to see, especially if they are touring around the capital anyway. The people were so glad we stopped in.
