Louisiana State Exhibit Museum
3015 Greenwood Road

The Louisiana State Exhibit Museum opened in 1939 as one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "New Deal" public works projects, the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum is an architectural jewel, layered inside and out with costly marble, granite and polished aluminum. Its front portico features a two-story fresco executed by the famed muralist Conrad Albrizio and the beautifully rendered scale dioramas (valued at millions of dollars!) that make up the bulk of the exhibits are like a snapshot of Louisiana life in the igs^s. Without a doubt, this is one of the most beautiful buildings in the state.

In its wide halls, the museum features exhibits on Louisiana history and culture almost too numerous to mention, but which include showings of Native American and Civil War collections, as well as continually rotating artwork displays. Outside of the museum itself, the well-manicured grounds feature small gardens for the enjoyment of visitors.
