Features hands-on, interactive, family-oriented permanent and changing exhibits on the arts, sciences and culture from the Ice Age to the present. The structure and grounds alongside Central Canal is itself an exhibit, featuring a steam clock that marks the hours with "Back Home Again in Indiana" played on eight brass whistles, the English, Banter, Mitchell Foundation fountain and the Watanabe Family Gardens. The Grand Lobby features daily storytelling and sing-along programs and houses Faces of Indiana, Indiana's Treasure. If that’s not enough, an IMAX Theater is on the Canal Level and a story and visual about each county is imbedded around the exterior—walk around the building to find all 92.
