“a playful portal into a vast universe of discovery”
Serving as a playful portal into a vast universe of discovery, The Lafayette Science Museum offers a fun, hands-on experience for curious minds of all ages. Located in the heart of downtown Lafayette, the museum houses exhibits and installations that are sure to enlighten and educate while proving that you’re never too old to learn something new – and, of course, have lots of fun in the process. In 1969, the Lafayette Natural History Museum and Planetarium began as a community project designed to provide science enrichment to area schools. Started by the women’s organization, Les Deux Douzaines, the museum existed solely as a volunteer program that visited junior high and elementary schools to provide field trips and events focused on science education. Seeing the need for more than what they were currently offering, the museum quickly moved into a location in Girard Park designed by Neil Nehrbass, the architect also responsible for designing Lafayette’s CAJUNDOME.
