Your Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites

Today's gift. Tomorrow's impact.

Your financial support has never been more important or more necessary than it is right now. The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites receives state funding to cover basic operational expenses, but your financial contributions provide high-quality programming and exhibitions that make the museum come alive. Telling the unique story of the great Hoosier state to Indiana’s school children, adults and visitors from around the world requires the help of our members and donors. Make your gift today, and show your support for what is truly unique about the great Hoosier state.
