Louisiana Art & Science Museum Staff



William Barker

Facilities & Safety Manager

If you could have dinner with any scientist, who would it be and why?

If I could have dinner with any scientist or artist it would be with Nikola Tesla. His contributions to modern-day electricity revolutionized the world of electricity. He was such a forward-thinking person and I would enjoy discussing with him the thoughts he had for the future of electricity and electrical power generation. 

What do you love most about working at LASM?

What I enjoy most about working at LASM is the unique opportunity to work in a museum setting that gives back so much to the youth of our community. Seeing the patrons of the museum enjoy learning about history and art is very gratifying. I also enjoy the friendly people I work with and the beautiful location of the museum itself. Working downtown near the river is certainly a bonus to me.
