Property Description

Visit the Capitol Park Museum to explore the incredibly diverse history of Louisiana-from Louis Armstrong to Huey P. Long, Mardi Gras to fais-do-do, and from the nation-building commerce of the Mississippi River to the life-sustaining bounty of the Gulf of Mexico.

See how American Indians; colonists from France, Spain and Britain; enslaved Africans and Acadians from Nova Scotia-eventually known as Cajuns-populated and cultivated Louisiana, shaping it into one of the most culturally rich regions in the world. 

Explore the two permanent exhibits: Grounds for Greatness: Louisiana and the Nation and Experiencing Louisiana: Discovering the Soul of America. And check out the events calendar for walking tours and special events. 

Operating Hours: Tuesdays–Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Closed Sundays, Mondays and state holidays.
