    The Indiana State Museum is Indiana’s museum for science, art, and culture, offering a place where you can celebrate, investigate, remember, learn, and take pride in Indiana’s story.

    Great museum, even without the special exhibits (didn't budget for the extra cost). If you're an ASTC member and are traveling the requisite distance, admission is free!

    Lovely museum, bright and well laid out. Their exhibits are always well laid out and informative. The gift shop has a lot of cool local stuff

    Spend a little extra and get the annual membership, it gets you into museums around the country, free parking and free popcorn at the IMAX every time

    Great venue for wedding! Other times, check out the IMAX or just take a walk on the canal.

    If you're from out of town, the information desk by the garage entrance has maps to the city and the volunteers can tell you all the best places to go.

    Ask at the ticket counter for a "monthly gallery search" packet. Find the hidden objects and your kids win a very cool prize at the end! (July's is a genuine mastodont bone!)

    When bringing kids, bring or ask for cardstock to use at check-in points and emboss through the museum. Scan entrance tickets at the computer stations and the next computer will remember you Read more

    The cafe really isn't bad, the food is decent and fair priced. You can sit outside on a nice day, overlooking the canal.

    At the Canal Cafe, the grill guy will cook you almost anything you ask for. And, if you don't see "chicken velvet soup", you can request it anyway. Read more

    Be sure to check out the 92 County Walk around the outside of the museum. Sculptures and artwork to represent each county are so fun and interesting!

    Find all the mastodons! The 200 years of statehood exhibit was extremely fascinating.

    Chicken Velvet soup is all you need to know. If you don't, you've been warned.

    Not at all impressed with new cafe. While the food is delicious, it is no longer cost effective for a family. It will no longer be our go to place. :(

    Skip WWI exhibit. Went explicitly for Father's Day, it's only a few uniforms scattered about. Park system=tech issue. Chased down for $, had just paid (only 1 other family there-forgot already??)
