Celebrating 25 Years!

Hip! Hip! Hooray! The Northeast Louisiana Children's Museum is celebrating 25 years of bringing quality, educational and hands on fun to families in this region and everyone is invited.

The celebration will take place at The Children's Museum at 323 Walnut Street in downtown Monroe on November 18, 2023. Seating is limited and cake WILL be served! Doors will open at 6pm and TROUT FISHING IN AMERICA will perform at 6:30pm. 


Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing and yet seemingly unlikely musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Id let. As individuals, they are about as different as one can imagine. Together, they blend seamlessly in a way that has captured the imagination (and hearts) of audiences of all ages for over four decades. Keith and Ezra have played shows for kids as well as adults. Sharing knowledge and encouraging art has become another musical mission of TFIA. In the past few years, they have developed a variety of songwriting workshops for teachers and students that illustrate how art and music come from the fabric of everyday life. Their willingness to make fun of our most annoying habits in one song, then touch our hearts with tender and passionate images of family life in the next is what makes the connection between Trout Fishing in America and their audience so real. 

Sponsors of this event are: The Fisher/Krutzer Family, Bayou Life Magazine, Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, KNOE, The Saye/Ryan Family 

Admission is $5 only per person for everyone ages 2 and up. If you would like more information, call us at 318-361-9611.
