Discover Indiana’s diverse and dramatic landscapes as early European explorers would have seen them. Learn about the large animals that once roamed through our towering forests and the birds that flocked to our extensive wetlands. Travel through time to understand the changes in biodiversity that our land and animals have undergone.

Engage the senses | Is that a mosquito in my ear? Are my feet sinking into softer ground? Engage all of your senses through three lifelike landscapes.

Frog games | Touch Indiana frogs to hear their croaks, then try to spot them hiding amongst the Kankakee Marsh’s water, grass and other creatures.

Hide and seek | Stand in the middle of the Tipton Till Plain and hear the sounds of the mountain lion on your right quietly stalks a deer on your left through the forest.
