Visited on a Saturday; folks working there said it was closed but let us in to visit anyway. Entrance fee is donation. Worth a visit if you are a history buff; staff there were passionate and interesting.

Take a few minutes of more to see this fabulous museum. Take your children for a fun and innovative way to learn about the past. Great building!! Great historic items. It's well worth your time!!

What a gem. Fascinating historical facts about Shreveport and the surrounding area. They have done a remarkable job of restoring this museum.
