Visitors to the State Archives can catch a "glimpse" of Louisiana's colorful past via its exhibit program. Upon entering the State Archives building, one has easy access to The Louisiana Room, where rare documents, photographs, artifacts, and other antiquities are displayed in eleven wall cases and two floor cases. Adjacent to the Louisiana Room is the The Gallery which has traditionally hosted such shows as the River Road Art Show, the Associated Women in the Art Show, and the National Society of Watercolorists. The Gallery is also used for the display of oversize artifacts as well as for small meetings.
