Indiana Historical Society

The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, home of the Indiana Historical Society, underwent a major renovation and re-opened in March 2010 with the launch of its new feature, the Indiana Experience. The Indiana Experience uses new technology to immerse guests in stories of the state's past in easy, enjoyable and meaningful ways. Enjoy a visit to the Cole Porter Room, concerts on the canal throughout the warm weather, great food at the Stardust Terrace Cafe (operated by Hoaglin To Go) and unique shopping including a wealth of Indiana-related books, music and gifts in the Basile History Market. For those seeking Indiana gift items, please visit www.indianahistory.org.

Cost: $7, adults; $6.50, seniors; $5, children 5-12. Admission is free for IHS members and children younger than 5.
