Indiana State Museum

Indiana State Museum

Constructed completely from Indiana materials including limestone, sandstone, steel, brick, and glass, the building itself is a work of art. Discover icons representing each of Indiana’s 92 counties on the exterior, then step inside to explore Indiana’s past, present, and future through scientific, cultural, historical and art exhibits.

Located in White River State Park in the heart of Indianapolis, the Indiana State Museum brings the best of the museum world to Indiana. Filled with three floors of Core Galleries telling the story of Indiana as well as fascinating changing exhibits, the museum explores art, science and culture. Learn about Indiana and its place in the world.

We hope you enjoy our work.
