For Educators


Why Louisiana Art & Science Museum?

Encounter a 65-million-year-old Triceratops skull, discover a mummy’s tomb, and journey through the cosmos.

Our experiences can be transformative for your students because programs build on one another, bridge disciplines, and create connections between objects, ideas, and experiences. Participate in hands-on classes, immerse yourselves in extraordinary stories under the planetarium dome, and discover the world through interpretation of art and museum objects in our galleries.

Layered experiences open new worlds at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum. Our programs spark big ideas and give meaning and relevance to what your students learn. We have designed them to meet your educational expectations, address your curriculum requirements, and foster a lifelong love of learning. 

We offer a wide range of educational programs for students in preschool through grade 12:
• Exhibitions that focus on fine art, ancient Egypt, and more
• Hands-on galleries
• Interactive educational theater
• Planetarium shows
• Educational DVD films
• Hands-on art, science, and creative integration classes
• Discovery Dome, a portable planetarium that travels to your school

If you have questions about any of our programs, feel free to contact us at educators@lasm.org. We look forward to another great year of learning experiences with you and your students, and we thank you for allowing us to be an extension of your classroom. Join us and discover how art and science shape each other, our lives, and the world.
