One of the joys in covering the BMW Championship was the opportunity to ‘explore’ Indianapolis and the capital of the State of Indiana.
But when you mention Indianapolis you immediately think of the annual Indianapolis 500 car race.
However, there’s very much more to a visit to Indianapolis that is the second most popular city in the Midest, after Chicago, and is the 14th largest city in the U.S. The city was founded in 1821 as a planned city for the new seat of the Government of Indiana, Indianapolis on a 1-square-mile grid adjacent to the White River.
The Indiana State Museum showcase the stories, events and characters that have helped shape Indiana’s history.
The Museum is easily located in White River State Park in downtown Indianapolis and brings the best of the museum world to Indiana.
The museum spans three floors and tells the story of the Hoosier state, and features a year-round calendar of exhibits that explore Indiana art, science and culture.
Constructed completely from Indiana materials – including limestone, sandstone, steel, brick and glass – the building itself is a work of art, with icons representing each of Indiana’s 92 counties integrated into its exterior walls.
So thank you to all at the Indiana State Museum for a wonderful experience.
