Very unusual place and experience!

There is lots of history to be seen and experienced within the Institute: museum, art, books, library, photos, and archetecture..

Chock full of wonderful stuff
Apr 2021 • Friends
Others have commented on all the wonderful items, so I’ll talk about the genealogy section. Small - but a good selection of items to study. There are even more items in a vault and the librarian was very helpful in finding them.

I am in a power wheelchair and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get into the building much less to the 2nd floor museum. But there is an elevator to the right of the front door (as you’re looking at the building). There is a button (like for automatic doors) that opens the door to a tiny lobby. Just call the elevator and you are off. Both floors were very easy for me to get around.

Architectural and Historic Contrast to the Harmonist Communities
Mar 2021
The history of the Working Men's Institute & Library, which we learned on an Atheneum tour, is what we found quite interesting. Actually touring the building a little less so. The building itself is beautiful and the second floor library awash in natural light on a sunny, early spring day. The small history museum/art gallery opposite to the library is interesting, but could use a museum intern to devise ways to engage people, especiallly kids, with the exhibits and history. Worth a stop, but probably would spend less than 30 minutes here.

Skip the Athenium and go here!
Aug 2020
If you are running short of time skip the Athenium and go here! There is history and geology and it is much more worth the trip.

Museum and library
Aug 2019 • Solo
The library is on the first floor, while the museum is on the second floor. The exhibits are varied, with good labeling and information.

On one of you visits to town. This was super interesting and intriguing. A very nice collection of artifacts and memorabilia. I’d recommend that you allow time for a visit.

Check out the library and museum
Jun 2019 • Couples
We found this imposing building and decided to check it out. It is the oldest continuously operating public library in Indiana and also houses a museum on the upper level. Admission is free, so come in and browse the books and check out the eclectic collection of items in the museum.
