In accordance with Governor Holcomb’s plan for Back on Track Indiana, the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites is currently scheduled to reopen at 100 percent capacity on July 7. The governor has reiterated that this plan is subject to change. Due to the timing of the opening dates, all scheduled programs and events through July 6 will be canceled or rescheduled across the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites system.

We appreciate your understanding while we work through these complicated times, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

New dates for any programs will be posted as soon as they become available. Questions about ticket purchases can be directed to Visitor Services at 317-232-1637.
