Believe it or not, this museum is free!! I was skeptical because it was free, but the exhibits were authentic and educational. To take a break, enjoy a leisurely stroll inside (with plenty of benches to stop for anytime you want to rest), THIS IS THE TICKET.

Lots of interesting displays of 19th & 20th century Louisiana history. Although the diarama displays are old fashioned, they are very well done artistically and quite informative. Also on display are many Louisiana historical artifacts including a low production, locally manufactured, brightly colored automobile that was produced around 1910 to compete with Ford's black-only Model T.

I remember visiting the La. State Exhibit Museum with my parents and grandparents when I was growing up. So much to see and learn there! This museum has many interesting and unique exhibits. The old building has a special atmosphere. Visiting this museum will become a special and treasured memory!

I have always loved coming here since I was a little girl. The exhibits are really neat and it is very interesting. It is a must see for families and a learning experience. When the State Fair is in town I never miss this exhibit. It is a tradition for me.

This museum is all about Louisiana. Admission is free to this amazing place that features whatever you want to know about the state from the Indians that originally inhabited Louisiana to the time the museum opened. There are dioramas, items on display, lots of information about the exhibits including QR codes that can be scanned for more in depth info.... More

This museum is located at the Louisiana State Fairgrounds in Shreveport. If you're in the area stop by and take a look. It's very interesting and doesn't cost a fortune to visit. It is circular in shape so, you basically end where you began. You'll probably spend a few hours here.

Visit all of the local artists exhibits that make Shreveport an artsy place. Especially see the ML Vinck engravings. All the staff are so very helpful (ask for Nita).

Immaculate facilities. Very clean. You could spend 30 minutes or 2 hours. The local art display (temporary) was a nice little surprise. Because the building is round (1/8 mile) I recommend doing one lap for the outer perimeter then another for the inner. The staff was knowledgeable, pleasant and pretty good looking too. If nothing else, anyone who lives near... More

Nice museum, so many interesting items to see. I recommend this if you are interested in learning a little about Louisiana's history. Doesn't take much time and is easy to get around. The part of town is not very nice, just be aware of that. They do close early so make plans to go earlier in the day.
