Stopped here at 4:00 pm on our way east on I-20 since it was rated so well on trip advisor.
There were guards everywhere! We were told it closed at 5:00, so we tried to hurry through and see a lot. We would have made it, but they started closing at 4:45 and were ushered out.
What we did see was wonderful! The rare books room had an elephant page original Audubon book, which the attendant said was the most important book in the collection.
We enjoyed many Russell and Remington pieces, a Mary Cassat, and of course, much more.
There were staff members everywhere watching people and I guess, making sure no one took pictures.
After exiting the building, we went out back where we were the only people touring the gorgeous gardens. Those were the biggest azaleas I have ever seen, although not in bloom.
Really, our only disappointment was that no photos can be taken anywhere on property.
So, stop in if you are ever in Shreveport. Two hours would be a good amount of time to spend at this lovely.free museum.
