Built in the 1930s, the Louisiana state exhibit museum is an interesting building on its own. The museum is circular. Around the outer are dioramas depicting Louisiana abundant resources. And interesting note is that the diorama figures are made of bee's wax. Another very interesting...More

Dear Ambear12, I am sorry about your recent visit but a little bit puzzled. Can you tell me when you were here? First, our front desk person is not Caucasian and your description really doesn't match anyone here. Mainly, we do not charge an admission...More

I don't know where the previous reviewer is coming from -the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum is not run down by any stretch of the imagination. Built in 1937 as a WPA project, it is an art deco lovers must see. Lots of wonderful dioramas showing...More

OLD and very very run down. This place is truly only for the most hardened history buffs. The A/C routinely goes out here during the Summer and it gets HOT.

This museum had lots of interesting dioramas, artifacts, and things from LA. There was a lot to see. The parking was plentiful and it was free to get into.
