The Indiana State Museum is located within White River State Park in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. It is Indiana's museum of science and culture. Even the building is a showcase of the best Indiana has to offer in architecture, materials and sculpture. Look for state historic sites in their home counties statewide.
All permanent galleries will be open as well as special exhibits including "Science on the Edge"; "Amazing Maize: The Science, History and Culture of Corn";"REPRESENT:Celebrating Indiana's African-American Artists" and "Heartland Art: Selections from Your Indiana Collection."
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
