The Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also the only public museum in Louisiana honored as a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate. This distinguished designation allows the Museum to have access to the traveling exhibits and educational research services of the Smithsonian Institution. Unique in both its massive circular layout and its world-renowned dioramas, and acclaimed for its huge fresco and Native American artifacts, the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum (LSEM) houses many dynamic collections and rotating exhibits that offer insight into the history and culture of Louisiana and beyond. The Museum is a major attraction in Northwest Louisiana, the state and the Ark-La-Tex and has been so since it opened in 1939.

LSEM presents historical exhibitions and public programs for people of all ages and ethnicities. Designed to be of interest to the entire family, the Museum's murals and exhibits relate the story of Louisiana's great natural resources, agriculture, industry and history. Noted for its distinctive architecture, the circular building reflects the Modernist style and incorporates Colorado marble and Texas granite throughout its interior. Architects were Edward F. Neild, D.A. Somdal and Ed F. Neild, Jr., all of Shreveport.
