Visit Baton Rouge

At the heart of it all is the Shaw Center for the Arts, an architectural showpiece that includes the LSU Museum of Art—a 13,000-square-foot space with both touring and permanent collections—and a rooftop terrace and sushi restaurant, Tsunami, which offers stunning views of the Mississippi River and a popular gathering spot for a night out.

Offering world-class performing arts inside the Shaw Center is the Manship Theatre, an intimate 325-seat venue that features a steady rotation of dance, comedy, film and nationally known music acts, with a focus on jazz. A commons area in front of the Shaw Center has interactive fountains, space for events, immediate access to downtown attractions, and a direct view of the magnificent Old State Capitol—now a Louisiana history museum, complete with a gift shop.

Just steps away is North Boulevard Town Square. With café seating, water features, a media beacon and more, it’s perfect for concerts, outdoor movies, picnics or just sipping a latte. Located adjacent to the town square, Repentance Park features an arc walkway with seating, sculptures, fountains with 750 jets and a sloping lawn where children can run and play.


In between the two is Galvez Plaza, with a stage for live music and the international award-winning Crest, a 65,000-pound, 35-foot-tall, steel, curved sculpture that doubles as a performance stage cover. As well as playing a starring role in outdoor concerts presented at the plaza, the Crest has become a symbol of the new downtown vibe and a tourist attraction in its own right.

Nearby are attractions like the 34-story State Capitol (observation deck on the 27th floor), riverfront levee, the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, two riverboat casinos, and the Raising Cane’s River Center, which hosts concerts, Broadway shows, conventions and trade shows.
