The Louisiana State Exhibit Museum opened in 1939 as the largest project funded in Northwest Louisiana under the New Deal program. The circular building is noted for its architecture, which combines Neoclassical and Modern design. The museum is a member of the Smithsonian Institution Affiliations Program.

It highlights 18 world-renowned dioramas created from beeswax. Rotating exhibits, frescoes, and large murals of Louisiana scenes and the Indian Gallery are other points of interest.

Built in 1937. Frescoes cover the main entrance. Painted in 1938, the frescoes are believed to be the oldest frescoes in the United States and the only ones in Louisiana.
