Capitol Park Museum

The Capitol Park Museum features thematic exhibits on the diverse aspects of Louisiana history, industry and culture.

Located in Downtown Baton Rouge, the museum houses two permanent exhibits entitled Grounds for Greatness: Louisiana and the Nation and Experiencing Louisiana: Discovering the Soul of America. Both highlight those aspects of Louisiana's history that are nationally significant, as well as those aspects of the state's culture that are unique.

The Capitol Park Museum also offers visitors a chance to experience changing or traveling exhibits in one of its large galleries. School and group tours available. Also available for reception, meeting, party and lecture event rentals during business and evening hours.
