It is a beautiful place and we learned a lot on our visit. The food we purchased from the cafe in the basement was all very good. Since it was a nice day, we were able to eat outside with the canal view at an umbrella table. It was a pleasant and memorable experience.

Would highly recommend this interactive museum! The docents were very helpful and really took the time to explain the layout of the museum and answer our questions. The actors in the living photographs went the extra mile to engage with my shy 6th grader helping to spark an interest in history and increase his confidence.

About Indiana Historical Society


In 1830, a group of history enthusiasts formed a club around a pledge to delve deep into their state’s history and record each decade’s goings-on. So were the humble beginnings of the Indiana Historical Society, now an expansive home for artifacts, images, and a library, all showcasing the state's rich past.

One of the facility's main attractions, the Indiana Experience sculpts the Indiana Historical Society's research into interactive exhibits and programs to forge personal connections between modern populations and their regional predecessors. Within, actors interpret the lives of historical figures and guests interact with three-dimensional re-creations of historic photographs in the You Are There series. In the most recent You Are There, City Under Water, visitors can help with the recovery effort after the great flood of 1913, interacting with volunteers to help the flood sufferers and exploring the Wulf’s Hall Relief Station.

The William H. Smith Memorial Library also maintains a can't-miss archive of documents that explore Indiana's history, including films, sheet music, and historic newspapers, as well as more than 1.7 million photographs. When hunger makes its way onto agendas, visitors can dine indoors at Stardust Terrace Café or outdoors on its canal-side patio.
