Celebrating the Fiftieth Anniversary of CODOFIL in 2018 

The exhibit will be open January 23-Dec. 15

Opening reception in February

Educational programming throughout the year


The Old State Capitol is the state’s political history museum so it is fitting that we examine the history of this organization born of legislation in 1968.  For 50 years, CODOFIL has worked to promote and preserve Louisiana French, encourage new generations of French speakers and instill a sense of pride in Louisiana’s French culture. This exhibit will feature bilingual text, images, and objects representing the work of CODOFIL and the influence of French on the state’s culture.
