Louisiana Old State Capitol

Louisiana’s Old State Capitol, a Gothic architectural treasure, stands high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The old statehouse, which began construction in 1847, has withstood war, fire, scandal, bitter debate, abandonment, an occasional fistfight and a restoration. Today, the building stands as a testament to bold, inspired leadership and active citizenship.

Prominently located in downtown Baton Rouge, it is a free museum open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
