  • Awesome environment clean great for kids. Best way to see Mike up close and personal. Nice family time place Mike" was asleep when we first got to his habitat, across the street from Tiger Stadium. However, he woke up soon and gave us a good show, "posing" for pictures and pacing back and forth for all to see! Definitely worth a visit! Home to the tiger mascot of LSU. It is an enclosed man made pond and land environment to house Mike the Tiger. Kids and adults alike love seeing exhibit. It is also wheelchair accessible.
  • Mike's home is an impressive Habitat and each time I go, he is usually out and about. I enjoy the gift shop next door as well. The campus is beautiful and this area is no exception with decorative tiles featuring donors and honoring lsu contributors. There is a big bronze statue that my boy loves. There are helpful plaques around the habitat that discuss Mike and tiger info. Parking is tough. Don't expect to drive up to it. We couldn't find any visitor parking anywhere on campus and instead had to park in the grocery store parking lot across the street. This was parking for the retail shops only but after driving around for 30 minutes and having to u turn when running into parking gates, we we're willing to take the chance.
