About LOUISIANA STATE MUSEUM FRIENDS
660 N 4TH ST, BATON ROUGE, LA 70802, US
Supporting the Capitol Park Museum’s educational mission and public offerings through membership, volunteerism, financial support and other resources
In 2006, the Capitol Park Museum opened as the largest and most comprehensive survey exhibit of Louisiana history, culture, and art in the State. Its mission, "to collect, preserve and present, as an educational resource, objects of art, documents, artifacts and the like that reflect the history, art and culture of Louisiana for the citizens and visitors to the State of Louisiana" is supported by full-time staff and volunteers drawn from the Friends of the Capitol Park Museum, student interns, and community and corporate volunteer organizations. In 2009, the Friends of the Capitol Park Museum, or Capitol Park Friends, organized to further the Museum’s educational mission and interaction with the communities it serves. The Capitol Park Friends has raised more than $100,000 to support exhibitions and projects at the Museum. Special projects include the building of new signs in front of the museum and taking a lead role in raising funds for the traveling exhibits, most recently, The Smithsonian’s Negro Motorist Green Book Exhibition in 2021. With highlight events like the Annual Spanish Town Parade Party, Walking Tours, and sponsoring exhibit openings and monthly social functions, the Friends have a growing membership and volunteer base and would love to include you!
