Downtown Shreveport has a strong Bohemian vibe, nurtured by street fairs, concerts, independent films, festivals and art. artspace, the Bailey Gallery, the Marlene Yu Museum, Southern University Museum of Art, Central ARTSTATION, The Agora Borealis and Sanctuary Glass Studio are among the locations that regularly host art exhibits, parties and events.
Across the street run, play and spray in downtown’s riverfront spray park which is connected to an 8-mile riverfront jogging/bicycling trail. Towel off and pop up to Spring Street to the Multicultural Center of the South and the Spring Street Historical Museum then take in the item that the Smithsonian covets…a century-old pump at the Shreveport Waterworks Museum located at the McNeil Street Pumping Station. The museum offers a fascinating glimpse back in time, into a way of life more than a century ago. New to the grounds is the Shreveport Railroad Museum which examines the role railroads played in Shreveport’s history.
