This is my second time at the museum. I loved it more this second time around. My children ages 13 & 9 enjoy learning about the history of Indiana. The best part is the interactive "You Are There" sites which take you back in time to a point in history based on a photograph. The knowledge that the actresses and actors have is remarkable. It is like you have stepped back into time with the actual people sharing that moment. You get to ask a variety of questions and they share their knowledge with you. We easily spend 3-4 hours there and it feels like an hour. There is a cafe on site which is next to the canal which is a beautiful scenic spot. The food is good but pricey. The shop has a variety of finds including Cole Porter music which after attending the Cole Porter room is a must buy. I bought a couple CDs for my father as a gift. It is such a gift to have this type of museum. The amount of work that is put into the interactive exhibits is amazing. I highly recommend this museum if you enjoy learning about history and want to feel as though you were apart of this much earlier point in time. It was brought to my attention that the museum does a "Christmas Story" You Are There exhibit during the holidays. I was told it is very popular and I might consider returning for it in the future. I am definitely keeping this museum on my "To Do" list as I monitor future exhibits.
