The Indiana Historical Society recently launched its Indiana Experience -- a set of new interactive and high-technology experiences that allow the IHS to share its tremendous archival holdings, including 1.6 million photographs, in meaningful and enjoyable ways.
The Indiana Experience is available Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and cost is typically $7 for adults, $6.50 for seniors and $5 for youth (ages five to 17).
This summer, the IHS is launching a "History Partner Days" program, of which the Putnam County Museum is a part. During the weeks of Aug. 10-14 and Aug. 17-21, the Indiana Historical Society will honor Putnam County Museum membership as its own, offering PCM members complimentary admission to the Indiana Experience.
This also includes free parking in the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center's lot as well as a 15-percent discount in the Basile History Market.
To take advantage of this offer, members must present their membership newsletter at the History Center's Welcome Center
If you are not yet a museum member, now is the perfect time to join. Memberships are available starting at the $25 level and up. New members joining between now and Aug. 2 will receive free admittance (one free at the $25 level, or two free at the $50 level and above) to the museum's annual meeting and gala on Aug. 7 as well as benefit from this great opportunity at IHS.
