Why We Were Founded

Founded in 1981, the Louisiana Museum Foundation was created as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit to accept and administer grants and community donations that the Louisiana State Museum (LSM), as an agency of state government, was unable to accept and administer for themselves. 


What is the Louisiana State Museum

The Lousiana State Museum, founded in 1906, is a collection of historic buildings, five located within the French Quarter, that house half a million artifacts that showcase Louisiana history and culture. Interested in learning more? Visit their website here.
