This museum in downtown Baton Rouge is located on the Mississippi River and is great place to take children to play. There are 2 playrooms, one for school-age children to see/play with science, and another for babies/toddlers. In addition, there is a mummy exhibit that even our 3 year old was interested in seeing, and a fantastic planetarium. Planetarium shows are additional fees and the only showing that allows children under 3 years is the 10 am each day. The shows are fabulous and enjoyable for everyone! Metered parking is available in front of the museum and be sure to picnic on the levee!
