The taste of our food is just the tip of the iceberg lettuce. From the field to the table, each bite has a story that will make you appreciate it so much more.
Location: First Floor
Food and You Market
This classic LCM exhibit is back and better than ever with a whole grocery store (yep, working registers, too) built for little shoppers to fill their carts with all kinds of meat, produce, and more.
You can’t have enough cooks in this kid-sized kitchen. Prep, mix, bake and broil your favorite Louisiana recipe to serve to your hungry grown-up.
Simple machines work overtime moving coffee beans up and down, over and around, and underneath a giant gantry crane.
Growing and Gathering
There is a simple but profound pleasure in gathering your own food. Kids learn this wonderful lesson as they harvest produce from the garden and crawfish from the pond.
Ports and Cargo
With so much of our food coming through the port of New Orleans, this exhibit explains the important journey our food takes through ports and across shipping routes.
There are way more things to do than we could possibly list here. Come see for yourself.
