Atchafalaya National Heritage Area
An American-Indian word, "Atchafalaya" (Think of a sneeze: uh-CHA-fuh-lie-uh) means long river. Established in 2006, the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area stretches across 14 parishes in south-central Louisiana. It is among the most culturally rich and ecologically varied regions in the United States, home to the widely recognized Cajun culture as well as a diverse population of European, African, Caribbean and Native-American descent.
Welcome to the Louisiana State Museum!
Founded in 1906 with a mission to collect, preserve, interpret and present the state's rich history and diverse cultures, the Museum's collection now totals more than 450,000 artifacts and works of art. These provide an authentic experience of Louisiana to visitors from around the world while enhancing the quality of life for residents.
Our "collection" includes a complex of seven historic French Quarter buildings that have become icons of New Orleans - especially the Cabildo and Presbytère on Jackson Square - and a statewide system of regional and special focus history museums in Baton Rouge, Thibodaux, Patterson and Natchitoches.
We look forward to your visit. Meanwhile, check here often for the latest on exhibitions, programs and our ever-growing collections of fascinating history!
Founded by The West Baton Rouge Historical Association
The West Baton Rouge Museum is a member of the Louisiana Association of Museums, the American Association of Museums, the Southeastern Museums Conference and the American Association for State and Local History
The West Baton Rouge Museum is an educational resource committed to researching, collecting, preserving and presenting artifacts, documents, art objects, and the like that reflect the history and cultural heritage of West Baton Rouge Parish and the surrounding areas for the benefit of the general public and future generations.
The LSU Museum of Art, located on the fifth floor of the Shaw Center for the Arts, comprises 13,000 square-feet distributed among fourteen galleries. With ceilings over 15 feet tall, the contemporary space can comfortably accommodate works of art in a wide range of media.
In addition to holding one of the largest university-affiliated art collections in the South – roughly 6,000 works – the Museum presents touring exhibitions of regional, American, and European painting, sculpture, decorative arts, works on paper, and photography.
The Museum’s galleries highlight American and British portraiture and decorative arts, American Arts and Crafts pottery, Chinese jade, and modern and contemporary paintings and sculptures, with a focus on southern artists.
The purpose of the Association is to foster a robust professional museum community in the State of Louisiana that is dedicated to education, cultural and recreational opportunities for all Louisianans, researchers and visitors to the state.
