About Indiana State Museum

The Indiana State Museum has origins dating back to the Civil War Era when Deloss Brown, a state librarian, started a mineral and curiosity collection in 1862. The collection began as a single cabinet of "exhibits," to which a state geologist was eventually assigned to maintain. In 1967, the state museum was given its present home.[8]

Since then, the museum has grown to offer visitors hands-on experiences exploring Indiana's history, as well as exhibits that highlight art, culture, and science.[9] The Indiana State Museum also features an IMAX theatre, museum store, educational programs, a cafe, special events, and online ticketing.[2]
