in Contests, Giveaways

In Good Cents has teamed up with some amazing Indiana bloggers to offer you a chance to win opportunities to tour some of the best attractions.  Make sure you visit all the blogs to enter!

I’m a big nerd.  I LOVE history.  It was the one class in high school that I didn’t space out through.  Luckily, I got blessed with a little girl who loves history too and doesn’t moan when I share it her.

As a Hoosier, I’m most curious about our history.  The Indiana Historical Society, located in Downtown Indianapolis, is home of the Indiana Experience where you can step into 1968 to hear Robert F. Kennedy speak, time travel back to hear stories of The Civil War, emerge yourself in the 1940′s with Cole Porter, and help restore original documents.  Through photos, technology, sculptures, art, and artifacts, you can experience historical Indiana and see Indiana oh so long ago.  It’s AWESOME!

But, the most enjoyable part of the Indiana Historical Society is the events.  These are the special days (sometimes months) designed for families that children (and parents) love.

This year’s Indiana Historical Society events:

Circus Day
Saturday, March 31 10 AM – 5 PM
FREE Admission!

I want to see the prohibition exhibit. I better get there soon, since it’s almost gone.

6 Donna C. January 20, 2012 at 1:23 PM

This would be a wonderful opportunity for my girls and I to have this experience. Being a single parent there is very little funds for entertaining and this would be something we could use throughout the year.
Everyone I have spoken to has had a great time.
