Plan a Field Trip
We love hosting student and youth group field trips at the History Center for a full-day or half-day of fun and content-rich experiences. Click here to watch a short video on what to expect during a visit.
Visit the Indiana Experience
Explore history through hands-on, immersive activities in a variety of settings.
