The LSU Rural Life Museum, often referred to as “Louisiana’s best kept secret,” is located on property donated to LSU by Ione, Steele and Pike Burden. Founded in 1970, special care has been taken to preserve the rural setting and feel of “days gone by,” as part of the Burden Family’s vision for the museum and gardens. The Rural Life Museum provides insight into the largely forgotten lifestyles and cultures of 18th and 19th century Louisianans. It has the largest collection of material culture of 19th century Louisiana and includes 32 historic buildings spread over the 25 acre complex.
Special admission charge.
