Your students have studied history; now they can DO history. Our experiences bring Indiana’s stories to life. A visit to the History Center in downtown Indianapolis includes admission to all exhibits in the Indiana Experience and can include additional interactive activities. Our team will customize an experience that fits your needs, no matter what grade or subject you teach.
All experiences meet Indiana Academic Standards in Social Studies and other subjects.
Indiana Historical Society is also the Indiana affiliate for National History Day. Students in grades four through 12 research and present a project on a historical topic that fits under the annual theme. For more information about National History Day in Indiana, visit www.indianahistory.org/historyday.
