The Art of the Museum

Much like Liberty Lagoon, which we covered last month, the Louisiana Art and Science Museum is a spectacular part of Baton Rouge that we at Cherry Creek live near. Since the summer is the perfect time to get familiar with local museums, we thought we’d take a moment to highlight this special place of entertainment and education. You can visit their website here for information, hours, and details about future exhibitions.

Their mission? We’ll let the museum speak for itself: “Louisiana Art & Science Museum seeks to enhance the understanding and appreciation of art and science for general audiences and students by presenting unique, educational and entertaining experiences that encourage discovery, inspire creativity, and foster the pursuit of knowledge.”

Let’s take a quick look at what they have to offer this month! Keep in mind that these are temporary exhibits that will change.
