The Golden Anniversary: Treasures from the Collection
August 18th - October 28th, 2018
​The West Baton Rouge Museum is pleased to announce a new exhibition entitled The Golden Anniversary: Treasures from the Collection which will open on August 18th and run through October 28, 2018.  This exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the West Baton Rouge Historical Association which founded the West Baton Rouge Museum. The exhibit will showcase the wide variety of artifacts found in the permanent collection, many of which have never been on public display before.
The West Baton Rouge Historical Association was founded in December 1968 by a group of local citizens dedicated to historic preservation. Fifty years later, the West Baton Rouge Museum is a nationally accredited museum dedicated to interpreting the rich and complex history of our area. The permanent collection currently has over 10,000 artifacts that span centuries of West Baton Rouge history and the museum has grown from its original home in the old vault of the parish courthouse to a 6-acre campus with 8 historic structures that represent life on area sugar plantations. The West Baton Rouge Historical Association is proud of what it has accomplished in its first 50 years and looks forward to continuing its mission of researching, collecting, and preserving artifacts that reflect the history and cultural heritage of West Baton Rouge Parish and the surrounding areas for the benefit of the general public and future generations.
