Louisiana Science and Art Museum is all about educating and inspiring the youth. The motto has made the place push for better accessibilities in the field of science and helps people reach them. It was actually an old railroad station that was later renovated to house the museum. The place is home to a permanent collection of over 4,000 items, all ranging from varied art fields. There are pieces on Contemporary Art, American and European Art, Ethnographic Art, and more. From time to time, it runs varied programs to encourage, educate and inspire the audience. Alongside the museum, there is a state of art planetarium and a space theatre both of which are a must-visit as well. Located in a historic railway station in the downtown area, the place is great for children and youth as they offer interactive sessions, live depictions of technology and more. In fact, anyone with a hunger for knowledge and passion for science can engage themselves here and spend a happening time!

Louisiana Art And Science Museum Reviews & Ratings
Great place for kids and the hands on learning is enjoyable for them. The place is a bit small, so it doesn’t take much time to cover it all, even with a movie. Staff are friendly and though the gift shop is small, there’s still a decent bit of things for kids to enjoy.
They told us we were not allowed to take pictures throughout more than half the museum. They wouldn't let me n the movie with my baby. The only interesting thing was the mummy. I feel as if I've wasted $40. Lame!
I loved it! Saw the Apollo 11 movie. My only complaints are that one of the employees seemed drunk (reeked of alcohol and acted it), and that the endangered/extinct animals exhibit will be going away in October.
This is a wonderful place to visit and work. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and is dedicated to create opportunities for children to learn. I especially love bringing my nephew and niece to the two hands-on activity rooms and they both get so excited about being able to explore and play there! This museum offers a great space for school groups to tour and engage in educational classes and activities as well!
If been here many of times and I think it's a great way to get educated on things we need to know and want to know.
