The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum are now open in a dazzling $23-million museum complex in historic downtown Natchitoches.

The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame's collection of portraits and memorabilia celebrate the achievements of more than 300 legendary Louisiana athletes, coaches and other sports figures. Other sports-themed exhibits and interactive media trace the history and importance of sports to life in Louisiana.

The Northwest Louisiana History Museum explores the evolution of unique cultural traditions from early native-American civilizations to the present. The building itself, designed by Trahan Architects of New Orleans, evokes the region's rivers and plowed fields with sinuous molded stone interiors and earth-colored exterior sheathing.

Admission includes all exhibitions. In partnership with the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and the City of Natchitoches, The Louisiana State Museum is proud to present this new family-friendly attraction to the public.
