Fascinating little museum especially if you like old cars or the Model T. Each car is well displayed and includes interesting information.

The collection varies from paintings of the West to examples of historical costumes and fine baskets; currently an exhibit of cowboy films features memorabilia from the movies, as well as the films themselves.
Another great visit to this museum if you are a history buff, enjoy the local history of these two historic resort towns or a circus lover this is a must see when in the area.
Located downtown, a very short walk from The French Lick Resort and a treasure trove of local history, this is a must see attraction.


The museum also had a huge Rube Goldberg-like giant marble maze, where you could crank a wheel to send the marbles going through it, ringing bells, zigzagging down steps, performing all sorts of tricks.
They have so many great exhibits, including a cool bubbles section, live animals (mainly reptiles/fish), a bed of nails, and an amazing infant/preschooler only section.
They encourage hands-on participation with many of their instruments which is refreshing in a museum.
What a unique museum, a museum that is dedicated to percussion instruments.
The museum is now a favorite hangout for locals and visitors who appreciate a quiet time while enjoying their coffee and reading their newspapers or books, just like the good old days.
From the Hulman family roots going back to Germany to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway combined with a food enterprise that will surprise you about its growth over a century, this museum offers a lot of information.
It is a clean, well lit, fascinating, interesting museum to tour - all the displays have large information boards providing detail on that particular item and in all cases, doors to the vehicle are open so one can...
I stopped here on my way through and really enjoyed it - interesting exhibits and relatively well laid out ... manages to cram a LOT into the space and some really cool stuff.

This museum has lots of information about Gus, his early years in Mitchell, his college years at Purdue, artifacts from his work, etc. Very, very interesting and awe-inspiring.
Located just past the entrance gate to Spring Mill State Park, this small museum honors Mitchell, IN native Virgil "Gus" Grissom who was an astronaut before his untimely death in 1967.

From art to science to Indiana history, there's a wide variety of exhibits and interesting materials in a very do-able museum.

The tour is presented by Debra Slone, a local artist and historian who has contributed much to the restoration of the Ice Cream Parlor and furnishing of the Museum.

It is excellently located in downtown Terre Haute where you can walk to get frozen yogurt or lunch.

We went to Indianapolis Children's Museum, Eiteljord Western Art museum and the IN Medical History museum, by far the most fun.
We started by viewing a film, met up with our guide, and actually had a private tour of the Oliver Mansion, left very much intact with beautiful rooms, antiques galore, and fun facts around each corner--such a gem.
We came to visit the Studebaker Museum (fantastic and well worth visiting) and ended up buying the combined Studebaker Museum / History Museum ticket which provides access to the Oliver Mansion tour.
The beautifully restored, decorated and furnished historic mansion alone would be worth seeing, but add the impressive collection of paintings, and ceramics by Indiana artists, and top it off with the opportunity...
Outside, the sculpture garden with nature trail has many interesting exhibits as well, though if they could invest in terraces with level gardens and more plantings it would make the site more accessible and useful.
Beautiful restoration and preservation of the original Auburn-Cord factory by repurposing it as a fascinating museum.
The museum is next door to the more famous and popular Auburn/Cord/Duesenberg Museum and it is well worth taking the additional time to visit the collector automobiles here.

Barker Mansion

Michigan City
The mansion has many items that are beautifully crafted, the architecture is fascinating, and the staff are friendly as well.
We visited it recently and took the guided tour (offered Tuesdays through Saturdays at 1 p.m. - self-guided tours are also available on Saturday afternoons).
From the historical artifacts to the information to the layout, I highly recommend anyone who appreciates the significance of our history and those who take the time to preserve it to make their way to this great...
Please take the time to learn about our American heroes ( including my late father, a WWII and Korean War veteran) and visit the Veterans Memorial Museum of Terre Haute.
There is a small museum building at the entrance packed full of uniforms, posters, bombs, and (best of all) trainers or cockpits for everything from fighter jets to Huey helicopters.
They do seem to have space to expand beyond their 25 aircraft presently on display.
