Louisiana State Exhibit Museum

Two Native American galleries are set to open at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport. They feature the Poverty Point culture and the Caddo Nation. The museum constructed a glass case to display a 30-foot long canoe constructed of a single bald cypress tree dating back 1,000 years. It was found on the banks of the Red River in 1983. A seven-minute documentary explains how it was preserved. The opening reception is Saturday, Oct. 20, from noon to 4 p.m.

The Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport is mounting a reprise of its "Remember When" exhibit it launched last summer. This year, the memorabilia includes Shreveport and Bossier City. The exhibit opens June 16 and runs through July 28.
