    All you need to know about American wars and associated history.
    Very well arranged.
    If you were in the military, you will have flashbacks.
    Our guide Kay is a walking encyclopedia which includes personal stories about individuals in the museum.
    A must see stop in Monroe.

    This is a lovely former home of the Biedenharns. The gardens are kept beautifully and there is a lovely fountain in the back. Something is always in bloom and they have special musical presentations from time to time. A relaxing afternoon in a beautiful setting!

    This was absolutely beautiful. It has clearly paved paths and board walks over the bayou that take you out to the actual lake that the park is named after. In just a short 30 minutes, I was able to see two cranes, a gator, many indigenous bird species, plenty of fish, dragonflies, and so much more. You can’t go to Louisiana a visit to the swamplands!

    Lovely museum in a former residence. Varied exhibits on a grand scale. Definitely worth a visit. Admission is free.

    My family and I are on a road trip and we stopped in Monroe because my husband needed to be on a work call. My 4 year old had a blast at this children’s museum for 3.5 hours while my husband worked. It was clean, entertaining, spacious, and the staff was kind. It’s a great place for the young kiddos.

    It's a great place to shop and the prices are reasonable. It has a great variety of places to eat during your visit and you can even come some days just to walk to get in some exercise. They've even added a section where kids can do like a bungee jump where the kids are put in a harness and allowed to jump. It also has a carousel and a movie theater.

    I have been to many performances from this wonderful company! I am always impressed by the costumes, sets, dancers and staff of this wonderful dance company. If you live anywhere within driving distance I would highly recommend attending a performance, it is a wonderful way to enjoy an evening with the arts!

    The Twin City Ballet offers a full season with a season opener, a Christmas Gala, children ballet performances and Ballet Under the Stars in an outdoor amphitheater. The TCBC has very talented local company dancers and hosts national dancers as well. Great quality ballet performances!

    Mark Clark presented another fabulous event for La'Opera at ULM's recital hall. Where does he find all those talented actors and voices.

    This museum located in the synagogue has lots of information about Jewish history, customs and celebrations. It contains a wealth of information about the Jews of Northeastern Louisiana and the early settlers and business owners in Monroe. Tours are by appointment.
