American Originals

<< See more permanent experiences


Visit a room filled with the faces of 20th Century Hoosiers—some who you recognize, and some who you may not. These Indiana legends made national impacts, and their stories are represented here.

Famous faces | Test your knowledge. How many of the nationally famous Hoosiers from American Originals gallery do you recognize?

The list keeps growing | Discuss other Hoosiers who have made national impacts and might one day be honored in a museum.

Personal conversations | Just because someone doesn’t make a national impression doesn’t mean they aren’t your personal American Original. Share a seat and discuss other people who go down in your history book.
