Louisiana Art and Science Museum

Located in the historic old railroad depot right on the banks of the Mississippi River, the LASM has several galleries of artwork (I sorta skipped through that part), a gallery of Egyptian artifacts including a mummy from Thebes (which alas did not allow photography), and a gallery of astronomical and earth science. Here are some photos.
