Who We Are
Friends of the Cabildo is an independent nonprofit organization that works with the Louisiana State Museum to enhance and sustain this important and impressive public institution as a high quality and nationally recognized educational, historical, and cultural resource.
Since incorporating in 1956, the Friends of the Cabildo has grown into a large statewide membership organization, a dynamic and motivating force in broadening and supporting the aims of the Louisiana State Museum.
Louisiana has a history and culture as rich and as exciting as it is complex. The Louisiana State Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits the art documents, and artifacts which reflect that history and culture, and comprise the state’s collective memory.
