The Old State Capitol, Louisiana is a castellated public building, now principally utilised as a free museum, in Baton Rouge, LA.  In addition to tours of the property, it is also possible to hire it for weddings and events.

 

From The Old State Capitol website;

'Louisiana's Old State Capitol educates the public on Louisiana's rich history and the democratic process through exhibits, programming and the arts. The museum is dedicated to inspiring engaged citizenship, advancing the collection and preserving this National Historic Landmark.

Louisiana’s Old State Capitol, a Gothic architectural treasure, stands high on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The old statehouse, which began construction in 1847, has withstood war, fire, scandal, bitter debate, abandonment, an occasional fistfight and a restoration. Today, the building stands as a testament to bold, inspired leadership and active citizenship.

Prominently located in downtown Baton Rouge, we are a free museum open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.'
