Grab the kids and head to one of these local sights this season! From learning about history in new and exciting ways to interactive play, boredom doesn’t stand a chance.


A beloved New Orleans tradition since the 1950s, Storyland is ready to host your next play date or birthday party in its enchanted playground underneath City Park's luscious trees. During the 2019 revitalization, enhancements were made to the original features and four new exhibits were added, including Boudreaux the Zydeco Gator. With interactive displays, new educational methods including STEM, plenty of structures to climb on, and additional ADA accessibility, Storyland offers a fun day for the whole family.


Bayou Country Children’s Museum

Life in Louisiana is at the forefront of the Bayou Country Children's Museum with hands-on recreational learning experiences designed for children ages 2-12. Located in Thibodaux, visitors will learn about the unique Cajun culture of the area including its history, landscape, industries, traditions, and even its severe weather through the 35 unique exhibits and displays including a shrimp boat, a duck blind, and a two-story oil platform. Guests of all ages will leave BCCM knowing more about "bayou country" and the Cajun way of life.


French Quartour Kids

Explore the French Quarter as a family with the help of French Quartour Kids. The kid-friendly walking tours are led by teachers (each with an advanced degree in education) and break the city's history down in a fun and interactive way for all ages. From ghost tours where children will "hunt" for well-known 19th century residents to a music tour designed just for teens, each experience will leave kids (and their parents!) with more knowledge of New Orleans' past.
