In this forty minute play, the character of Aunt Tilde educates children on the products, animals, natural history and resources and history of Louisiana, including the Battle of New Orleans. This program coordinates with the state’s 3rd grade curriculum. All of the products discussed in the “Aunt Tilde” program are represented in the museum’s rotunda exhibits.
Elementary classes can book a performance of the “Aunt Tilde” program any weekday between 9am and 3pm. Performances are offered free of charge to schools, church groups and summer camps. Contact Cindy Grogan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 318-632-2020 to schedule a performance.
