Old State Capitol

<p>In Baton Rouge, you'll find plenty of places to learn about local history and take in the interesting architecture, but Louisiana's Old State Capitol building is one place you won't want to miss. This castle-like building was constructed in the 1890s, and was once called the ugliest thing on the Mississippi by humorist Mark Twain. The gothic architecture certainly stands out, and since the capitol sits high on a bluff over the Mississippi River, it can be seen from all over town. Take a tour of the building or check out the museum to learn about Louisiana's political history.</p>

Baton Rouge Zoo

<p>Conveniently located just minutes north of downtown, the Baton Rouge Zoo has been thrilling visitors since 1970. The zoo is home to almost 2,000 animals from all over the globe and is open almost every day of the year. The zoo is focused on conservation, and participates in over 30 Species Survival Plans. These efforts will soon help reintroduce animals such as the oryx and the tamarin monkey back into the wild. The zoo also has some fabulous educational programs, including day camps, classes, workshops, and demonstrations. These programs reach over 45,000 students every year.</p>

Shaw Center for the Arts

<p>The Shaw Center for the Arts is the cultural hub of Baton Rogue. This center has a performing arts venue, an education center, a rooftop restaurant, a park, and a number of museums. The building itself is quite impressive, with its translucent German glass, and has even won an award for its use of materials. If you're a fan of the fine arts, the LSU Museum of Art has a permanent collection here, as well as rotating exhibits from all over the world. For fans of the performing arts, the Hartley/Vey Theatres put on shows in dance, spoken word, music, and theater.</p>
