AAA Editor Notes
LSU Rural Life Museum is at 4560 Essen Ln. This 5-acre outdoor folk museum is a re-creation of an 1800s plantation. The cultures and lifestyles of pre-industrial Louisianans are recalled through collections of tools, household utensils, furniture and farming implements.

The museum is divided into three areas with 36 relocated or re-created buildings. The Exhibit Barn area contains rural life artifacts from prehistory to the early 1900s, including tools and vehicles. The authentically furnished Plantation Quarters re-create the plantation's major activities and include a gristmill and blacksmith shop. The Louisiana Folk Architecture area showcases diverse construction techniques to illustrate the various cultures of Louisiana settlers. Other highlights include the 25-acre Windrush Gardens.

Time: Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
