Experiences

There are a bajillion paths to take through LCM. But the easiest way to plot a course is to choose the exhibits you want to see or the things you want to learn. Walk through the reeds or brush up on your reading. Learn the songs of this city or make your own music. The world is your oyster. Hey, you can learn about those too!

How do you explore? By topic or by experience:

Literacy

Early literacy is critical to preparing a child for success in school and beyond. The Talk & Play Center in our Community Space and Book Nooks throughout the Museum use storytelling, play, puppetry and poetry to help kids master language.

Environment

Indoors and out, there are lots of ways to learn about sustainability and the wonderful wetlands around us. Check out our Outdoor Adventures, Dig Into Nature and Move With The River galleries to grow your little nature lover.

STEM

In life and at LCM, STEM rules. It’s technically impossible to find a place without science, technology, engineering, and math on display, but the best places here would be the Dig Into Nature, Follow That Food, Move With The River, Outdoor Adventures, and Make Your Mark galleries.

Arts & Culture

Make Your Mark gives kids a blank canvas to explore their creativity through design, art, music, and building. Follow That Food introduces them to the spices and flavors that are naturally New Orleans. Both teach a deep love of this city.

Health & Wellness

Health and happiness are BFFs. Get an all-you-can-think buffet of health, food, activity, and fun in the Follow That Food and Play With Me galleries.
