The Indiana Historical Society provides various educational opportunities for the overall community. The Indiana Historical Society educational opportunities range from programs that can be taught in the classroom to on-site programs. One of the on-site programs include a specialized school tour, where students and teachers have the option of including one of a variety of add-ons to their tour. One of the highlighted add-ons include a special story time that is led after the tour. A member of the Indiana Historical Society will recall and influential and significant story of Indiana’s history and relay it to the students and teachers.
Another fantastic educational opportunity at the Indiana Historical Society is the Indiana Experience. The Indiana Experience fully immerses visitors into the life of people who lived in Indiana and the Old Northwest throughout the ages. The Indiana Experience includes a five exhibit interactive experience.
The first exhibit is You Are There, which explores historic photographs that were created in three-dimensional print. So, it appears as if you really are standing among Indiana’s historical features. The next exhibit is Destination Indiana, which showcases how technology has changed throughout the ages. Other experiences in this educational program include; Cole Porter Room, W. Brooks and Wanda Y. Fortune History Lab, and Lilly Hall.
