Downtown Alexandria Arts and Cultural District

Dotting the downtown Alexandria streetscape are several venues where culture and the arts come alive. The Alexandria Museum of Art, the Arna Bontemps African American Museum, the River Oaks Square Arts Center, the T.R.E.E. House and Children’s Museum, and the Coughlin Saunders Performing Arts Center are all must-sees. Pops in the Park with the Rapides Symphony Orchestra, the Kress Theatre and various other events taking place at the Alexandria Amphitheater are a great way to absorb some culture and the beauty of the area.
