Welcome to the Museums at Cassidy Park

What's New At The Museums?

Houma Pine Needle BasketIn the Native American Museum the palmetto basket exhibit features work of renowned basket weavers of the Houma Nation.

In the Pioneer Museum the Black History Exhibit features Bogalusa's African Americans who have achieved prominence in art, literature, poetry, music, and civil rights activism.

And For The Kids!

Both museums have an activity area where children can learn to crochet, weave, make a pot holder, go on a scavenger hunt, sit in a rocking chair to read a book, color a Native American design, or take a peek in the Palmetto hut. Each Saturday the docents in the Native American Museum help the children with a project. They make either a necklace, bracelet, or a clay pot that they take home with them.
