If you are relocating to the Baton Rouge area, or if you are a resident unfamiliar with all the many things to do here, I recommend you check out the Louisiana State museum. It would make a gret kick back if you are on an intense home search for a home in Baton Rouge. The museum is a 69,000 sq.ft. facility located downtown across from the Capitol Gardens. What a nice way to introduce yourself to our city and state!
An easy walk from the state capitol and from the oldest subdivision in Baton Rouge, Spainis Town, it is a wealth of information. Family members of all ages will enjoy the exhibits here. Located on the corner of Fourth St and Spanish Town Road, it is fun from the time you step up to the front. The is one step for each of the states when the building was constructed (48 as AK and HI were added later).
The views of downtown and the Mississippi are worth the trip themselves. And the lawn and sprawling Oak trees are a reprieve from the summer heat in Baton Rouge. So take a break. Come to 660 N. 4th St., downtown Baton Rouge, LA 70802. Learn about Living with Hurricaines. If you're pressed for time, you can even view a few exhitis online.
