Museums

Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana has a vibrant and rich history and culture. When you visit the USS Orleck Naval Museum you will have a unique experience, never to be forgotten. The Children's Museum has interactive exhibits and the Mardi Gras Museum has the largest collection of Mardi Gras costumes from local Krewes that you will not soon forget.
