The Indiana Historical Society is a hidden gem in Indianapolis. It may not be on the list for the casual visitor, but if you live in Indy or the surrounding area I recommend you put it on your to do list. They have permanent and traveling exhibits and a nice auditorium. Three of the best things about the IHS is 1) Location 2) Location 3)Location. It is located right on the canal, high above the water. They have a diner on the bottom level with additional outdoor seating. They also always seem to have events going on through the spring and summer. The best part if these are they are free. Finally, they have a nice parking lot that is very cheap. I think it is $1, perhaps two, but really cheap. Back to the location, they are located across from Military park. This makes it convenient if there is an event at one, you can follow it with a stroll on the Canal or a picnic at the park. Put IHS on your calendar.
