In Louisiana, politics is a full-contact sport played out on a grand stage. One of the grandest is a Gothic-inspired castle known as the Old State Capital. Today, this fortress-like structure, with twin crenellated towers, a cast-iron spiral staircase and a breathtaking stained-glass dome completed in 1852, houses a museum with multimedia exhibits about Louisiana political history. Don’t miss the exhibit detailing the career of legendary Louisiana governor Huey Long (1893-1935).
