In light of new public health announcements made by the CDC—as well as by the Mayor of Indianapolis—we are closing the museum for all public events and tours through at least May 1. Until we re-open, please explore our website, which contains an extraordinary array of history & civics e-learning opportunities, including primary resources, original photographs, and 3D scans you can even print! Our staff remain available to serve you (remotely) and we welcome your continued support.
Thank you for being an important part of the Presidential Site and sharing a legacy in action!
