Sure, Louisiana is best-known for music and food, from Shreveport’s country crooners and fried chicken to Lafayette’s zydeco and boudin to New Orleans’ brass bands and beignets. But the state’s roster of things to do shine well outside the walls of its top restaurants and music lounges: the best museums in Louisiana are, in some ways, some of the best (and most bizarre) across the globe. Whether your visit to the Pelican State is centered around Baton Rouge or somewhere in the more remote bayou-laced location, there is a fascinating museum within striking distance awaiting your visit.
