Once home to the Louisiana State Legislature, the Old Louisiana State Capitol is located in downtown Baton Rouge in the heart of LA’s Plantation Country. A National Historic Landmark, the building preserves the state’s early history with a slew of historic exhibits and must-see architecture.

Visitors are encouraged to explore the “Louisiana Castle” and check out the award-winning “Ghost of the Castle” exhibit show, as well as the dazzling stained glass windows and ceilings. Check out area highlights – the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum and Shaw Center are within walking distance.
