Hoosiers are proud of their heritage and cultural history. And no place presents it better than the Indiana State Museum in downtown Indianapolis.

The museum is a destination for young and old – and all ages in between – to discover their inner explorer.

Indiana Jones wannabes can visit a simulated dig or dig into Native American history. They can meet a charging mastodon head on, or view the faces of famous Hoosiers. An educational, exciting adventure awaits visitors at every turn. Established in 1869, the museum was housed in various venues before finding a permanent home in White River State Park. The three-story building, constructed from materials native to Indiana, opened in 2002 as a repository of history, culture, art and science, representing each of the state’s 92 counties.
