Old Arsenal Museum

Old Arsenal Museum Review

Only one Revolutionary War battle was fought outside the 13 original colonies, and it was fought on the state capitol grounds. These days the grounds are pleasantly landscaped, but this restored heavy-duty powder magazine, set atop a knoll beneath the towering state capitol, recalls the spot's role in the war. The museum inside has informational exhibits held in powder kegs that open and light up and displays on Louisiana's Native American history.
