Fodor's Review

This museum showcases the history of Louisiana through two permanent exhibits. "Grounds for Greatness: Louisiana and the Nation" situates Louisiana events in U.S. and world history, from the Louisiana Purchase to World War II. "Louisiana Experience: Discovering the Soul of America" takes the visitor on a road trip–like exhibit that courses through the different regions of the state. Rotating exhibits in the museum's gallery explore the arts, culture, and history of the region.
