(WISH) — With some students out of school Monday for the Presidents Day holiday, Indianapolis-area museums are welcoming everyone for free.
One is already sold out, however. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will be open only with timed tickets, and all were already sold out Saturday afternoon, according to the venue’s website.
Here’s a roundup of other special events at museums without admission on Monday:
- Conner Prairie in Fishers: Special programs will include data on the seamstress of President Abraham Lincoln’s wife, an overview of presidents on US currency, and a selection of baby portraits of presidents. A full list is online. People must pre-register for timed tickets.
- NCAA Hall of Champions at White River State Park: The Presidents Day Fitness Challenge will pair visitors of all ages with former NCAA student-athletes for free throws, vertical jump tests and throws soccer. Medals will be awarded to all who complete the fitness challenge. Reservations are not required.
- Indiana State Museum in downtown Indianapolis: Its website says highlights include speaking from the White House press room, the creation of a presidential advisory cabinet, and the learning about “Jimmy Carter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as you craft a bill of rights for the future.”
- TC Steele Historic Site in Brown County: Tours will be held at 10:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., and 3:15 p.m. of the former studio and home of Hoosier Impressionist artist Theodore C. Steele, who died in 1926. Telephone reservations are encouraged due to limited tour occupancy. The phone is (812) 988-2785.
