Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana is saturated with a rich history and vibrant culture. There is everything from the Children's Museum which offers many interactive exhibits to the Mardi Gras Museum which houses the largest collection of Mardi Gras costumes from local Krewes that will dazzle your eyes. History lives on at museums such as the 1911 Historic City Hall in Lake Charles or wonderful collections at the DeQuincy Railroad Museum. Let's not forget one of the more unique experiences that you can have aboard the USS Orleck Naval Museum.
