Louisiana Travel | Regional Military Museum BY: Susan Arcement

Dedicated to the brave men and women who have defended our great nation throughout its history, the Regional Military Museum is a constantly growing collection of military memorabilia and artifacts. Veteran volunteers give you first-hand accounts on a tour through America’s military history. The knowledgeable tour guide brings life to the memories and artifacts of wars that American soldiers have fought in.

The museum and grounds are filled with military machinery and vehicles (that still run) and heavy artillery and weapons (that really fire). It has a vast collection of authentic uniforms from all branches of the military that are sometimes borrowed to be used in Hollywood movies.

A showpiece in the museum is a Twin Commander Model 680, better known as Airforce 1, which President Dwight D. Eisenhower often used for short trips or to small airports. The Commander-in-Chief often flew the plane himself. Nicholls State University students completed a history of the plane and flight log that is also on display at the museum.

The museum is constantly expanding and updating its collections so each visit brings a new perspective into the sacrifices made by our brave men and women of the armed forces.

What Cajun Daughters Love about the Regional Military Museum:  Volunteers are true American heros that share their own personal experiences and have a wealth of knowledge of the museum’s military inventory.
