When the chance of rain is greater than never in Baton Rouge, look for some indoor fun around the capital city for the answer to your rainy-day blues.



Knock Knock Children's Museum


Try out an indoor trampoline park. Your rainy day is sure to be hoppin’ at Sky Zone, with trampolines, an obstacle course, a zipline, ultimate dodgeball, a ninja warrior course and so much more for y'all to explore. If your child prefers climbing to jumping, head over to Uptown Climbing for indoor rock climbing. For a selection of activities ranging from bowling and laser tag to arcade games and golf simulators, check out Main Event or Surge Entertainment, where you’ll find it all under one roof.

Looking for mental stimulation? Head to one of 14 East Baton Rouge Parish libraries for specialty programming or explore one of the many museums Baton Rouge offers. Both Louisiana’s Old State Capitol and Capitol Park Museum give a different look on Baton Rouge and Louisiana’s history while still remaining engaging and fun for the whole family. Knock Knock Children’s Museum has 18 different learning zones, sure to get your child’s brain moving! 

A trip to Baton Rouge isn’t complete without beignet fingers, so kick off the day with breakfast at Coffee Call. Don’t worry, parents – Coffee Call is known for their café au lait, giving you the energy you need to get through a day full of activities!



Bellyfire classes


There’s nothing like an escape room to put your skills to the test! The 13th Gate Escape gives you the option of eight different themed rooms for you and your team to try and escape. If you prefer something a little more leisurely, try a painting class at Painting & Pinot, throw some clay at BellyFire Studios or have a DIY day at DIY Disco. If you’re looking to try your luck, head to one of Baton Rouge’s casinos!

End the day grabbing a drink at one of our many bars or breweries! Be transported back to the 1920s, by heading to Baton Rouge's own speakeasy, The Tunnel, or spend some time at a neighborhood dive bar, like Pelican to Mars


Fun for the whole family

Dad and kid at OSC

Put on your bowling shoes and head to All Star Lanes to strike up some competition within your family or lace up your roller skates and glide to Skate Galaxy for family skate time! Want to sit back and relax? Celebrity Theatres, Cinemark at Perkins Rowe or Movie Tavern all have the latest and greatest movies playing. If a live performance is more of your family's jam, head to Theatre Baton Rouge and catch a show.


Whether you’re jumping on a trampoline, trying to beat the clock in an escape room or learning more about Louisiana’s history, there are plenty of ways to spend a rainy day in Baton Rouge!
