The Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science, one of southern Indiana’s leading cultural institutions, is a general museum maintaining a permanent collection of more than 30,000 objects including fine and decorative arts with an emphasis on the 16th – 21st centuries. Of key importance are collections of late 19th – early 20th century Indiana landscapes and portraiture; contemporary American still life paintings; and fine art and crafts purchased from over six decades of the Museum’s prestigious annual juried competitions of Midwestern art.
The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites is a statewide museum system with 12 locations, offering visitors a chance to engage with Indiana’s past and present and see how their actions help shape the future. At each location, visitors are invited to explore big questions and create lasting experiences that will resonate long after each visit ends. Whether interested in art or architecture, history or science, there’s something for everyone and every interest. The Indianapolis museum is located in White River State Park in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. The historic sites are located statewide, stretching from Rome City in northeastern Indiana to Angel Mounds in the southeast.
