School's IN at the Indiana State Museum

We’ve put together a fun, informative video with some tips for a great field trip. We encourage you to share this video with your students and chaperones to prepare for your upcoming visit.

Please remember:

  • Students must be accompanied by a chaperone at all times, and everyone is asked to behave in a respectful manner.
  • Groups damaging or destroying museum property, or otherwise not being adequately supervised, will be asked to leave.
  • Some objects in the galleries may be touched, and are indicated as such. Please remind chaperones and students that objects behind barriers such as ropes, wires, or glass are not meant to be touched. If in doubt, please don’t touch, climb on, or move an object on display!
  • Food and drinks are not permitted in the galleries.
  • Please refrain from flash photography in the galleries. The light can damage fragile objects and artifacts.
  • Have fun and enjoy learning about Indiana history, science and culture!
