German-Americans in Indy

The Indiana Historical Society has partnered with the Athenaeum for an exhibit that celebrates the legacy of German-Americans in Indianapolis.

It explores the many contributions of these immigrants to the ongoing story of the city through a dynamically designed approach to text, graphics and illustrations. It highlights themes of Art/Culture, Architecture, Business and Education.

The Athenaeum was opened in 1893 as Das Deutsche Haus at 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis.

The exhibit is in the historic landmark's hallway at the entrance to the Auditorium - one of the Athenaeum's major meeting spaces. The installation assists docents in bringing history to life as they conduct tours of the venue, offered twice a month and by special appointment to groups, including school groups.

It's open to the public at no charge.
