Who We Are
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.
Louisiana Art & Science Museum envisions a community of lifelong learners who are inspired by art and science.
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum is defined by the belief that the disciplines of art and science shape and inform one another and that interdisciplinary experiences enhance the audience’s ability to make connections and discover new ways of seeing and thinking. The Art & Science Museum is located in a 1925 historic railway station, on the banks of the Mississippi River, in a thriving downtown area. The Art & Science Museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and has an annual attendance of 175,000, with approximately one half of this audience being schoolchildren. The institution also presents fine art exhibitions, an extensive school curriculum, and hands on galleries, along with weekend programming for families. The institution has just completed a conceptual master plan for the future.
