When was the last time you went to a museum? Did you have a good time? What did you do on purpose or did someone drag you there against your will? I’ve realized that as I get older, I find museums more and more interesting – and that’s pretty much whatever the topic. I wish I had this desire to learn new things when I was back in school.
You might not know it, but Indiana has the proverbial “butt load” of museums. I bet you’ll find that almost every town in Hoosier State has some sort of museum or historical society that tells the story of that town’s past. Some cities are home to several museums – large and small – that display all types of artifacts. When I was researching museums in Indiana, I quickly realized that there were far too many to include in a comprehensive list, so I decided to break them down and create lists based on them. different types of museums.
For this list, I focused on Indiana’s most “unique” museums. I don’t want to use the word “weird” because it’s too subjective – what’s weird to me might be totally normal to you. But you cannot deny that these museums are unique and look really interesting.
Keep in mind that the museums featured below cover the entire state of Indiana. I realize most of us won’t plan a road trip and overnight stay just to visit one, but it seems like a good idea to make a mental note so that the next time you be in Dunkirk, Indiana, you can say “Hey, Dunkirk is home to the glass museum. We should check that out while we’re here.”
Indiana’s Most Unique Museums
Indiana is home to many museums, many of which house quite unique, unusual, and unreal artifacts. Here is a list of 14 such museums throughout Hoosier State. I decided to put them in alphabetical order. Enjoy!
