We seek to enhance the understanding and appreciation of art and science for general audiences and students by presenting unique, educational and entertaining experiences that encourage discovery, inspire creativity, and foster the pursuit of knowledge.
We envision a community of lifelong explorers inspired by art and science.
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum is defined by the belief that the disciplines of art and science shape and inform one another and that interdisciplinary experiences enhance the audience’s ability to make connections and discover new ways of seeing and thinking. LASM is located in a 1925 historic railway station, on the banks of the Mississippi River, in a thriving downtown area. The Art & Science Museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and has an annual attendance of 175,000, with over one-half of this audience being school program participants.
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum's staff is busy developing new ways to encourage discovery, inspire creativity, and foster the pursuit of knowledge. Now you can relax at home and enjoy some of LASM’s popular programs for free - while practicing social distancing!
#OurWorkContinues to bring you the same high level of enjoyment and professionalism you have come to associate with LASM’s learning programs. Our virtual experiences address art and science topics for all ages, from Stargazing and The Traveling Trunk Show to science experiments, craft demonstrations, collection spotlights, and even gallery tours.
