Capitol Park Museum

There’s something for everyone at the Capitol Park Museum. As their website puts it “From Louis Armstrong to Huey P. Long, from Mardi Gras to fais-do-do, and from the nation-building commerce of the Mississippi River to the life-sustaining bounty of the Gulf of Mexico, the Capitol Park Museum provides a panoramic exploration of the most vibrant state in America.”

Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center

If exploring nature is more your thing, then Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center is the ideal place to take your family.  This 103-acre facility focuses on conservation, education, recreation and tourism.  They also feature a 9500-square-foot building filled with live animal exhibits, along with photographic presentations of the site's flora and fauna, natural artifact and mineral displays, and a sizeable, vintage waterfowl decoy carving collection.
