Photography Permission Policy
Periodically, the Children's Museum of Southwest Louisiana takes photographs and video of Children's Museum visitors and activities for use for promotional and editorial materials and grant requests. With admission into the Children's Museum, you give permission to the Children's Museum for the recording of photographs and/or video of yourself and your dependents.

The Children’s Museum of Southwest Louisiana, Inc. has procedures in place for the safety of our guests and staff. In addition to following guidance and requirements from the CDC and the Governor’s Office, we have also worked with local museum leaders from across our state. Please note the new safety measures and policies. Louisiana is still in Phase II of reopening. Hours vary with clean sessions in between open play sessions. We ask for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. Thank you!
We can't wait to see you!
If you have visited with us in the past, things may look a little different. We have made adjustments to our exhibit areas, which now feature a “low touch” or “no touch” learning experience.
Please respect social distancing guidelines. Capacity for exhibits is one family unit per each exhibit.
Here are a few reminders for when we do open:
Members and Non-members must pre-purchase tickets in advance. All ticket sales are final and cannot be transferred to a different session. Tickets must be purchased 1 hour prior to the end of each session. This is due to the current health climate and the requirement to manage our capacity.
