Old State Capitol

Immerse yourself in Louisiana’s rich culture by touring the Old State Capitol, a National Historic Landmark standing high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. It houses the Old State Capital Museum of Political History that contains several state of the art exhibits.

Louisiana's "castle-on-the-river" is the recipient of distinguished awards for architecture and exhibit design. Climb the cast iron staircase and view a stained glass cathedral dome in this unique blend of Gothic and Victorian architecture.
